My Students

My students consist of three and four-year-olds who love to learn. They are eager to explore through hands-on activities, and I'm eager to engage them in meaningful play experiences to foster lifelong learning experiences. They range in different levels of academic achievement including language development, and about 50% are English Language Learners.

Our school is an early childhood center whose motto is to spread a love of learning and respect for one another.

Learning can only take place when our students care about their school and friends. Caring for your friends and teachers starts with role models so that students take pride in their school and learning will naturally occur.

My Project

The cushions, picture cards, emotion cards, and other materials in this project will aid in teaching students the power of mindfulness. Students will learn how to find peace and happiness through the power of mindfulness during activities that will encourage student-to-student interaction. The students will learn different tools that lead to mindfulness as they describe their emotions and how to work through them.

Students will practice mindfulness exercises utilizing the materials to encourage pro-social skills.

These are life lessons to enhance student interactions and powerful ways to teach students the power of mindfulness and the success of practicing it.
