MeMoves is a multi-media program using a combination of music, movement and images. It is organized into 3 categories: Joy, Calm and Focus. The program is designed to increase attention and calmness in as little as two minutes. MeMoves can be shown on the Smart Board or a computer monitor. The students mirror the simple, geometric shapes performed by the people on the screen. Using MeMoves just a few minutes each day is shown to decrease stress, improve mood and enhance the ability to focus and self-regulate. It is designed to be used as a shared activity.
NYISE’s Readiness Program Class E participates every morning in body movement exercises making it fun through songs and music. The children practice yoga sequence, breathing techniques and relaxing poses. They work on language skills, motor coordination, imitating postures, social skills, following directions, being attentive and much more to get ready to learn.
Each year the program holds a fund raiser for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
