SEL in the Classroom Toolkit - Preschool-2nd Grade
Four weeks of SEL yoga and mindfulness activities to easily add to your lower-elementary curriculum
Are you ready for a simple, done-for-you resource to help your children breathe more fully, calm themselves in a variety of situations, and connect in healthy ways with the people around them?
And… to do so in just 10 minutes a day with ease, confidence, and everything you need to make it happen!
Learning to breathe properly allows children to self-regulate and prepares them to focus and learn.
Identifying feelings then finding new ways calm down enables children to approach challenges, situations, school work, and friendships in healthy and balanced ways.
Finding new and fun ways to connect with friends and peers promotes teamwork, cooperation, and acceptance of differences, while also providing opportunities to thrive in a group situation.Through yoga and mindfulness, you can explore these three pillars and help children manage their bodies, minds, and relationships as they grow and develop.
We’ve made it super easy for you to bring these concepts and exercises to children through our done-for-you workbook!
This colorful workbook will help you easily integrate yoga and mindfulness into your student’s or child’s busy day. You’ll have four weeks of daily yoga and mindfulness activities based on the following themes: Breathe, Calm, Connect, Move, and Play.
It’s super easy to use. Just download, print, and play!
