To break up concentrated, focused, and on task time, I have my class mirror my tai chi movements. A good friend's master teacher taught me the fundamentals. You have to start with the basics and work up slowly. Practice at home first; you'll feel better and be glad you did! When I see the students getting fidgety, I give them a 2-minute warning, put on the timer, and say, 'I think it's time to visit China.' After a few times they'll know what's coming. Some kids will moan, but most will welcome the time to become physically and spiritually enhanced!
