vocab word of the day: ATMOSPHERE


we created a peaceful atmosphere in the classroom by turning off the lights, "lighting" our LED tea candles, and turning on gentle music. the kids spoke quietly as they led each other through different yoga poses, followed by a calming meditation. afterwards, we created a chaotic atmosphere by swapping the music out for the clash and turning the lights back on. i spoke loudly as i led the kids through different poses. everyone agreed there was a serious difference between the two experiences!
