Mindful brain breaks help students prepare to learn and focus throughout the entire school day
Have you heard the buzz about mindfulness & meditation in schools? In this mindfulness program we provide engaging, fun, and thoughtful practices that focus on students’ social and emotional learning. Dedicating just a few minutes a day to a mindful brain break will help your students prepare to learn and focus throughout the entire school day.
Mindful Movements allow students to become aware of their bodies through movement and breathing. This packet contains multiple series of themed mindful movements based on the yoga philosophy of mind, body, and breath connection.
Children need breaks in order to stay engaged and focused with learning. Movement breaks encourage a physical & mental break from learning, as well as help students stay focused during shorter laser-focused learning periods. We find that students can focus better after recharging and by knowing there will be another opportunity to move.
Mindful Movements Include:
- 12 themed movement sequences
- Printable posters for each movement sequence
- Printable Cards
- Printable Spinner and 6 movement choice board
- Bulletin board displays
- Instruction videos for each movement sequences
- Movement slides preloaded to Google Slides with instructional videos linked
These Mindfulness Movements are meant to be used anytime during the school day or class period. These quick and easy social emotional learning activities take as little as 5 minutes to implement. The biggest benefit is that they are adaptable to YOUR classroom! You may choose to implement Mindful Movements once a day or multiple times throughout the day.
Check out our Mindfulness at Home resource which can easily be implemented at home to help families incorporate mindfulness into their daily routines, or to use in moments when children are struggling and need a mindful break.
