CARE Classes at Moraine Farm
What is CARE Class?
This year, students in grades 1-6 will have a weekly subject class called CARE Class, led by Mrs. Reed! Students will work with monthly themes such as Communication, Gratitude, and Creativity. Lessons will have aspects of story, art, movement, and service as part of the regular rhythm of each 45-minute period. The last class period of each month will be dedicated to an age-appropriate yoga and meditation practice that will help to integrate the learning that developed over the course of the month. Students in seventh and eighth grade have an extremely tight schedule, so their exposure to this program will be integrated into existing classes and curriculum planned for them throughout the year. While their experience with SEL and mindfulness will look different than the younger grades, they will still receive instruction as time allows and according to the same themes as grades 1-6. (more…)
