Mindfulness 101! Students focus on the present moment using their senses to observe what is happening right now. They are introduced to the idea that mindfulness is about paying attention to the present.
In this lesson, students will read the story *My Many Colored Days* by Dr. Seuss, and reflect on the many different feelings we may experience. They will use body maps to color in where they may feel different emotions in their body.
In this lesson, students will explore and discuss the term "empathy" by hearing stories from two different perspectives and identifying the feelings of each of the characters. They will also discuss what it means to be true to ourselves.
Help your child make sense of their feelings by creating an emotions wheel. Students will reflect on a time when they have felt each of the emotions listed around the wheel, then they will create drawings to illustrate those times.
This Good Choice Chart will reinforce your child’s good choices while learning at home. Set a goal of how many stars they should aim for in a week to earn the reward, and look for opportunities to praise your child for making good choices!
In this activity, your child will have an opportunity to discuss what they like about themselves, and they will design a digital or physical poster that displays their talents, what they like, and images that describe themselves.
