Musicians tune their instruments and tune to each other. Why not tune our instrument of learning and optimize the capacities of kindness, empathy and compassion in our students. Join Jeannie on this journey of mindfulness activities for kids. You are invited to introduce yourself to some simple practices in this growing area of wellness and experience the benefits. In this session you will get a taste of a variety of practices that are presented in an easy to understand way in areas teachers already deal with in a classroom setting (helping children calm down, become more focused, managing upsets, etc). The exercises are from 'Sitting Still Like a Frog' by Eline Snel. As stated in the forward of her book, "What could be more important than learning and practicing how to be kind to oneself and others? Aren't those exactly what we most hope our chidren will learn?" Start with the introduction to some simple practices.
