It’s hard to cope with winter weather like this, but the first graders of Holmes may be able to help us all.

Through our ArtStart program, the entire 1st grade class at Holmes Elementary has been working with Kim Vulinovic of YogaKids Oak Park to learn the benefits of yoga, while also studying weather and weather terminology. Students have saluted the sun (even when it isn’t out), explored rain vocabulary as they stretched their hamstrings, jumped like frogs, hibernated as polar bears and felt their breath as the wind.
