Description

Class Experience

Students will learn movement techniques that empower them to take control of their learning, their emotions, and their attention.
The movements presented each week will center around focus training, attention to detail and cross-body integration, emotional regulation, patterns and mathematical thinking, lasting change through practice and success. 
Additionally, learning goals include improved fine motor, gross motor, ocular-motor, and oral-motor strength, coordination, and endurance for improved handwriting, reading, attention, and articulation. Finally, the group choose-your-own-adventure nature of this course will also foster opportunities for team work, respectful disagreement, and good communication habits in a team.
Ms Annika is a physical therapist who specializes in adapting movement patterns to individual students' needs. With more and more on-line learning being utilized in education today, students can easily get distracted, minimizing the actual learning happening in front of a screen. This program uses neurologic principles in movement science to enhance learning-- especially digital learning.
No homework--but the more you practice, the better your brain learns!
You just need a little bit of space and an open mind to try new things. Many kids have a water bottle on hand and a yoga mat if you have a hard or slippery floor.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
These techniques work for grown-ups, too!!

Appropriate parental supervision is necessary to ensure safety during at-home exercise classes. Please be sure the space is free from clutter, including baby brothers and puppies. 

Music used for educational purposes only to enhance the video game theme. We will dance to age-appropriate and clean music from video game soundtracks chosen by the learners enrolled in the class.
