Middle School Mindfulness: Building Resilient Students!

My students need mindfulness, yoga and meditation resources to develop strategies to increase emotional self-regulation and attention, as well as decrease stress and aggressive behaviors.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My amazing students come from a low-income area that has experienced many traumatic-events over the past several decades that have shaped both students and their parents. The students are so resilient and we want to build them up to be successful students now and thriving adults later. The high incidence of trauma in this community has resulted in a group of students who have difficulty regulating their emotions. Our school is working on being trauma-focused and this project would be one more step in that direction.

My Project

This project is to fund a mindfulness/meditation room at our middle school. We have been given a room with adequate space for meditation, yoga, and reflection activities; however, we are in need of supplies.

We would like at least 10 Meditation Yoga Inflatable Cotton Bolster Pillows , Zenergy Chime, Yoga Dice and Mindfulness Meditations for Teens cd for the use of students during our meditation/yoga club, after school activities, and classes.

Students will be able to use these supplies for "cool-down" activities as an alternative to disciplinary action.

We are also requesting funding for Yoga and Mindfulness Practices for Teens Card Deck cards for independent practice, coloring books, paint with water easel, and a zen garden will be purchased to provide more resources for students and teachers.
