Visitors in Oak

Today in the Oak Room there were some special visitors. During large group the children were given the opportunity to participate in Tai-Chi. Everyone gathered in the Indoor Movement Room to take part in a calming experience. Miss Ann, the leader of the activity was aiming for the children to find a sense of peace and calmness inside themselves. Each child participated in the various moves that were demonstrated during the session. The children were making comments on the moves and they referenced the slow paced movements to familiar fast paced movements. At the end of the session the children gathered in a circle to talk about their experiences while practicing the movements. The children seemed to have a positive experience while practicing Tai-Chi. It is enjoyable to welcome guest into our school for the children to experience new things. We thank them for taking the time to spend their Monday morning with us.
