Description

A classroom is a high-energy, dynamic environment in which there are dozens of moving parts at any given moment. Teachers need to be able to think quickly and remain calm in the face of constant change. Being mindful helps teachers act effectively as opposed to reactively, which facilitates classroom management and improves the climate of the classroom and school. Mindfulness also helps teachers reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and organization, and be more observant and responsive.

This six-page, quick-reference laminated guide is designed to help busy teachers easily access a wide range of basic mindfulness practices that help them return to the present moment throughout the day. It also guides teachers through the process of teaching mindfulness to students (K-12) in the classroom so that students are calmer, more confident, more self-reflective, less reactive, and better able to manage relationships and problem solve.

Sections include:

  • Mindfulness 101
  • Daily mindfulness for teachers
  • Meditation techniques
  • Mindfulness activities for the classroom
  • Guided meditation
