HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We hope you had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, and food. I know we did.
To kick off the new month of the new year, we thought we’d show off a little something we did over holiday break. Specifically, a brand-new installation of our new product line, Stick-On Stencils, at Viola Elementary School in Suffern, New York.
Students returned from their annual winter break to a hallway full of bright hopscotches, sensory paths, yoga poses and high-energy activities (like wall push-ups), eliciting great excitement.
“What the heck is this?” a student asked as they paused before a flowery floor sticker.
“You know what that is!” another student exclaimed. “It’s hopscotch!”
“I got the moves!” another student shouted as he danced over our custom Heel-To-Toe sticker.
The project included sticker versions of some of our favorite stencils, like the Daisy Hopscotch, Tree Pose, Crab Crawl, and Step Stones. The stickers all came together in a custom set, the Stick-On Stencils Nature Set, which contains all of our Stick-On Stencils at a discounted price.
Our stickers are made with a protective coating for longevity and an anti-slip surface, in addition to being awarded a Class A Fire Rating. We think they came out great, but the best part about the stickers is how they benefit learning.
We’ve discussed the importance of “brain breaks” in a child’s school day many times on the blog before, but this is just another example of the impact we’re having on the schools we work with. Before the kids can even sit down in the morning, they’re provided with an opportunity to hop, step and jump. Doing so allows them to get out all their pent-up energy before school begins. We’re eager to hear how the students of Viola Elementary benefit in the classroom with their new sticker installation.
What do you think about our little project? Let us know!
