The majority of resources that are available for teachers and students revolve around core content areas: ELA, math, science and social studies. However, current research has shown the importance of teaching the whole child and supporting their social-emotional needs, as well as their academic needs. When students feel safe and have a space for self-regulation, they are more prepared to meet the heavy demands of life and school. “Mindfulness is a powerful tool that supports children in calming themselves, focusing their attention, and interacting effectively with others, all critical skills for functioning well in school and in life,” said Amy Saltzman, director of the Association for Mindfulness in Education, and director of Still Quiet Place. For this project, I am requesting yoga mats and essential oils to introduce students to practice of mindfulness. Some of the activities that students will be engaging in will include journaling, focused breathing, meditation, and choosing a focus for class time.
