Help me give my students opportunities to learn about mindfulness, kindness and conflict resolution through Peace of Mind curriculum and related picture books.
Students in my class are enthusiastic learners! While they bring with them a wide variety of experiences, they all are curious about the world around them and are eager to share their learning with each other.
Like all children, my students learn best through student-centered, meaningful experiences.
I strive to provide meaningful activities in all academic areas to help my students acquire concepts and build their language as they learn about each other and work together in our classroom community.
Promoting social and emotional growth is an important area to focus on in Kindergarten and seems to have been devalued as our educational culture places more value on literacy and math skills. Content instruction consumes the majority of our instructional time which means students work on academic skills, but don’t learn how to listen or empathize with one another, cooperate, or understand how their behavior affects others in their community. Just like academics, students come to school with a wide range of social skills. Learning these important skills will not only help them learn to be successful students this year, but the tools will help them during their entire school career and beyond. Resources such as the Peace of Mind curriculum and related, quality picture books will help me teach these invaluable skills to my students.
