Since I mostly used my daily agenda to set my time lines and keep myself ontrack for finishing my assignment on time and for self reflection here are some pictures. Please disregard the mess on some pages between working for three school boards, being a single mom and roller derby my life is mostly chaotic. :)
Picture One- I first researched the connection between self regulation and yoga. I found some scholarly journals and articles regarding the benefits and links and printed these out so I could highlight keep ideas and use in my resource. I then had to dig out my own personal childrens yoga resources that I hadn't used in a while so I could draw some ideas regarding games.

I was terrible at monitoring my goals using this blog. I mostly used my day planner to keep track of goal setting and task management. As a self regulated learner tracking the progress wasn't my strong suit I often checked in with myself and reevaluated what needed to be completed but dound writing here as one extra time consuming step which I neglected.
What were the reasons for how your inquiry turned out? The reasons I believe my inquiry turned out was that I am a certified childrens yoga instructor and already had that background knowledge so just had to research and tie it to what I was learning about self regulated learning. I set my goal as something that was attainable and made plan. I checked in often to ensure I was using my time effectively and self monitored my work.
I was motivated to create this document because Id like to share it with other ETFO members in a workshop. This task was meaningful for me because I implement yoga in some way shape or form in my classroom daily.
Upon final reflection, what might you do differently if you were to do it again? What I would do differently is to reach out to other childrens yoga professionals to see what their experiences have been so I could add that insight and resources into the powerpoint. I would also keep to my scheduled goals more strickly so I didn't feel so overwhelmed nearly the end of the course to complete.
What effect has working toward this goal had on your own feelings of self-efficacy as an SRL learner? Working towards this goal has made me realize that self regulated learning is something that needs to be practised over and over again. Its something that needs to occur everyday in some capacity in a classroom if you want the students to be successful. It has so many wonderful benefits for all your life areas and should be encouraged, modelled and given feedback throughout your time and beyond with those students in your class.
