The students love to use real tools and work with real materials.  Here is one of the students using a screw driver to put screws into a piece of wood.  They can also hammer nails or saw if they have their safety goggles on.

Alright here we go again...

I haven't used this blog space in over three years.  My excuses are plenty: life, child, work.  But my excuse for using it again is that I'm pursuing my Masters in Education.  The requirements of one of my assignments is to document and track my progress for a goal.  I will use this space to write about and eventually post my resource for using yoga in the classrooms as a self regulation tool. 

My timeline to achieve my goal...
Research the links between self regulation and yoga- 2 weeks
Create a powtoon as platform for delivery- 2 weeks
Game ideas and breathing techniques that can be used in the classroom - 1 week
