Help me give my students a bookshelf to display all of our wonderful mindfulness books, a new Hoberman sphere, and enough rainbow liquid sensory viewers for all of the students to use them at the same time.
Three-quarters of the students at my public school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. We have a lot of immigrant families, mostly from Mexico and Central American countries, as well as people who have lived in the community for generations; it is a very diverse school.
We have been practicing mindfulness together for the past two years, and we are always looking for new ways to learn and practice.
I have collected a good number of picture books to supplement the lessons I teach each week, and I would like a bookshelf to display each book as we read it. The book covers are reminders of the lessons we are learning on gratitude, self-care, happiness, and more.
In the lower grades, one student per class chooses a breathing tool at the beginning of class, and we all breathe together.
Having enough rainbow liquid sensory viewers for each student would allow us to use that tool together. Our Hoberman sphere, which in our class we call The Magic Breathing Ball, is in need of replacing and is also used as a breathing tool.
