Mindfulness Update

We continued practicing Mindfulness this week. Students listened to the book When Sophie Gets Really, Really Angry, by Molly Bang. In this book, Sophie gets very angry. She yells, and she feels like a volcano ready to explode. She runs until she can’t run anymore. She cries. Then she sits on a rock and listens to the sounds of nature. She feels the breeze, and “The world comforts her.” Students recognized right away that Sophie was practicing mindfulness.

Next, we showed students this video:

We loved the idea of the glitter jar, and we decided to have each student make one.

Add glitter, water, a bit of glycerin, and watch the glitter gently float to the bottom of the jar.

Now that’s relaxing!
