Finding Balance.

By Carmen María Alvarado / fifth grade teacher.

To keep a bamboo stick over the head and walking without dropping it is a balance exercise we all should do at least once a day.

Performing every day a balance exercise helps students from many different perspectives; for example, they achieve full concentration and have the chance to find themselves. While performing this type of balance, children must ignore all external influence and find the silence inside themselves, an approach to their “own self”.

This exercise helps by providing calmness to the group, it also finishes the rhythm and movement parts the quietest way possible before the cognitive part of the journey begins.
