Teacher: Sarah Smitha, Redwood Pre-K Music Teacher; Limit: 12 students; About this class: Sarah Smitha, owner of Candy Mountain Music and Redwood Pre-K Music Teacher, is also Kentucky’s only licensed facilitator of Inamojo SEL learning adventures. Inamojo courses are guided by contemporary best practice in Early Childhood Development to help elementary aged children with lessons and skills that will help them navigate life’s challenges with greater understanding- of themselves and others- and greater resilience. Each class in the 9 week series focuses on a different key developmental theme: trusting instincts; managing emotions; self esteem; compassion for others; truthful communication; intuition and imagination; self awareness and spiritual connection. Using a carefully structured mix of stories, music, movement, mindfulness, sharing circle, and creative art, children will work with themselves and one another to help a friendly dragon called Naga remember who he is. Class by class, the children will embody the characters in the story, express their feelings around the themes and learn important lesson about themselves along the way. Treasure chests will be given out week 1 for the children to collect special stones after completing adventures each week.
