Description (10 points)

When updating the school Tahoe Lake is going to have a space available as a “Flex Teaching Space.” Part of the time it will be the Computer Lab and other times it will be available to be used for various things. I am hoping to add some Yoga/Mindfulness items to it. This way it can be available to the PE classes to do Yoga. Also for the counselor to do Mindfulness. It would also be open to all classes to just come to when it’s available to decompress and get reset when the time is needed. 

 

Benefits of Program (10 points)

The goal of having this space is to help kids increase their self awareness, and increase their calming techniques. Yoga has several benefits for the mind and body. It is non-competitive, teaches self acceptance, and increases focus. Mindfulness practices can help us to increase our ability to regulate emotions, decrease stress, anxiety and depression. It can also help us to focus our attention, as well as to observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment.

 

Success of Program (10 points)

The success of the program can be determined by the usage.

Implementation (10 points)

PE will use it between units or in conjunction with games they play. The Counselor will be able to use it when she does her Mindfulness lessons with the classes. Regular Ed classes will be able to use this space when Tech/PE or the Counselor is not using it.

Can you share this grant with your grade level or subject team?

This grant will be used with every student in the school through PE. The counselor will have access to it as well as all classroom teachers.
