A good friend of mine Mark W. Guay is a writer for theHuffington Post and he featured our class in his blog, "The Mindful Classroom." He writes about our morning meditation, singing bowl, yoga with Carla, and our fundraiser.
Sometimes we just need a minute! Stop the class when things are going bad or stop the class when things are going well. Students stay silent as they breathe and regroup.
Don't forget to discuss:
I have a designated area where students can take a break. It's in a private location in my room.
Peaceful Corner is Equipped with:
Mandala Drawings to Color
Cursive Practice Book
Sit up straight. Sit still. Sit silently. Sit with soft bodies and breathing. Shut eyes.
Sometimes students don't feel safe closing their eyes. They can sit looking at a spot on the ground.
