- Course description: Head Heart Fingers and Toes Readers' (h2ftr) Transition Awareness Breathing (TAB) program meets weekly. Transition Awareness Breathing (TAB) is adapted for elementary and middle school-aged children. This course is specifically tailored for children who could benefit from learning how to relax and work in a stressful or changing environment.
- Sessions are 60 minutes.
- Group size is dependent on grade.
- Grades K - 2 = 3-4 tab students
- Grades 3-8 = 5-8 tab students
- Students will learn how to be positively aware of their surroundings physically and emotionally in a nonjudgmental environment.
- Students will learn imagery meditation, relaxation breathing, sensory awareness, brain exercises, yoga stretches, awareness games, and activities to positively strengthen environmental awareness.
- The goal of the program is to provide each student with tools and resources to use in a variety of settings to positively enhance relaxation and learning. There are many stressors tugging at our children. Transition Awareness Breathing (tab) will teach students how to use transitional awareness breathing skills when faced with challenges or change.

This is not a quick-fix solution program. It is a program of action. Although sessions are weekly for 60 minutes, students will be given practice homework. The more participants practices newly learned skills, the more skills will become a natural response to everyday ups and downs.
- The second goal is to mobilize transition awareness skills into everyday practice.
- Participants will be asked to share what they have learned with their families. Participants will be asked to use their skills at least once a day for 5-10 minutes, in between sessions.
- Communication style: Motivational Interviewing style (open-ended questioning and facilitation) is the major style with a blend of “growth mindset”(encouragement to try again) will be used. Students will learn and practice in small group settings. All students are encouraged to participate at whatever level they feel comfortable with.
1. We want the class to be flexible and fun. Students must remain with the group until the session has ended. This helps positive build group dynamics, group trust, and continuity.
2. Music, stories, and games have been incorporated into the program to help participants to understand the session topics and concepts

- Refunds: If a child is absent there will not be a refund for individually missed classes.
