Divide students into small groups, about four to a group works well. Give each group a bag of coins, paper and a pencil, a bowl, and a piece of tape. If the coin lands in the bowl, the counter adds the value to their count. Each group continues playing until they reach the desired amount set by the teacher.
Mindfulness practices are often intentional and systemic ways of developing a compassionate and insightful presence to an activity. Focus on the breath is a key facet of mindfulness practice. Neuroscience shows that this makes us aware of the subjectiveness and transient nature of thoughts and emotions, rather than them being something unmoveable and permanent.
It allows there to be space between day-to-day stimulus and automatic reaction. Other important factors to consider are: You as an educator having a practice.
Children benefit most from mindfulness if their teacher practices it themselves. By having a mindfulness practice of your own you create a compassionate and nurturing environment for children to learn in. The best teachers are the ones that have a combination of good subject knowledge, pedagogical knowledge and passion for what they teach.
Mindfulness should be no different. There is nothing wrong with learning along with the children for a while but for more details on creating your own practice please visit my website. Continue your own CPD.
Continue to be creative and look to develop your understanding of mindfulness. Create new ideas, research and look for the connections between mindfulness and subjects within the curriculum. Please share these and any other questions or experience on my website or via twitter ryoungdharma or the hashtag mindfuledchat for great ideas.Seuss Poster - The more than you.
