My students need literacy connections and mindful practice activities to help them self-regulate their feelings and focus on the tasks at-hand.
I believe that students' well-being is vital in getting their brains ready to learn and apply academic lessons we have in the classroom. I have read that mindfulness promotes social and emotional well-being and I would like to do more of this in my classroom next year.
I tried some Yog4Classroom cards at random times last year and my 1st grade students really enjoyed it.
I would see them relax and calm down after doing the activities in the cards. After yoga, the students are more ready to learn and do academic work.
My experience in using the Yoga4Classroom cards last year to help children focus motivated me to learn more about mindfulness in the classroom. This summer, I was able to attend a training on Yoga and Mindfulness and has motivated me even more to use mindfulness in my classroom next year.
I would like to tie in some literacy connections to my first grade class as I implement mindfulness with my students, as well as have some activities available for them to help them calm down from whatever stress they may have.
The books I am requesting will tie in literacy connections, yoga and mindfulness in the classroom. The yoga cards, hoberman sphere and coloring books are activities I would like to use in my calming corner in the classroom to help children self-regulate when they are in a stressful situation.
