Yoga and mindfulness activities to foster social-emotional learning (SEL) skills specifically created for upper-elementary school students!

How do you find time to slip SEL into your daily classroom routine WITHOUT creating more work for yourself?

We’ve made it easy… with our brand-new SEL toolkit specifically for children in grades 3rd-5th!

This done-for-you, easy-to-implement toolkit will help you weave the benefits of yoga and mindfulness into the school day and further help:

  • Improve academic achievement and help students be ready to learn
  • Develop solid social-emotional skills they will use now and long into the future
  • Promote and strengthen attitudes about self, one another, and school
  • Enhance positive classroom behavior while improving the overall classroom environment 
  • Equip students with the ability to manage challenges, anxiety, and stress

You will receive ALL this goodness without creating more work for yourself or figuring out ways to get your students to buy in to the activities (because there are so many different exercises to choose from) and… without breaking the bank!



To spark your imagination, this collection provides fun and easy ways to breathe, move, and be mindful in your classroom. There are three sections: 

1 Emotional: to be calm These practices aim to help children build self-awareness, self-regulation, and self-confidence. This awareness helps children feel safe and secure in themselves and have skills to manage their big emotions. 

2 Social: to connect These activities put children in social situations where they build their communication, relationship, and teamwork skills. We want them to feel seen, heard, and understood. 

3 Learning: to be curious and creative These resources give students tools to energize, focus, and pay attention so they are ready to learn. We also explore a growth mindset and get curious about the world. 

Please refer to the CASEL Framework for further information on social emotional learning.

The practice of yoga includes several building blocks: breath, meditation, mindfulness, physical postures, positive affirmations, and character education. This resource covers these components, categorizing the related activities into sections of emotional, social, and learning. 

Each category includes 10 activities: 

  • Breathing exercises (x2) 
  • Mindfulness activities (x3) 
  • Meditation (x1) 
  • Yoga poses (x2) 
  • Positive affirmations (x1) 
  • Character education (x1) 


Please note that those images are printed versions of the SEL Toolkit.

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day - Workbook
Frances R. (Salt Spring Island, CA)
Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

he children like the materials, and respond to them well. They also love the stories. Myself, as always, I particularly appreciate the drawings. We have added to the emotion of feeling bad about yourself, because it is more common for the children I have worked with to be feeling bad for other reasons than low self esteem. Sometimes we feel really 'bad' (more like feeling ill - ‘sickened’ !!!) because we have done an awful thing, acting unthinkingly. Sso that we have hurt someone else's feelings or lost their trust in us.
We don't find it quite appropriate to encourage ourselves to feel good about ourselves in those circumstances - because our 'high' opinion of ourselves makes us feel disappointment in how we behaved. We want to hold ourselves to a higher standard than that.
In our language, we want to return to being our Better Self. We know we can! So "restorative justice" is what we want to DO. We want to feel better about ourselves, yes - but even more than that, we want to make up for what we did, we want to make the other person or people feel better, feel OK. We want to heal harm, restore trust, and have EVERYONE feeling better.
We love doing "restitution" - fixing what went a bit wrong back there.
We also have a song that we sing: "May we be filled with loving kindness, May all be well, May we be peaceful and at ease, May we be happy." That's the last verse - before that, we replace the "we" with “May you be - - -,” singing to the person we harmed in some way, then we sing to ourselves using "May I be - - -". This helps us feel not so bad about what we went and did back then, when we felt tired, impatient, frustrated, or simply mean-mindedly cross! - or any of the feelings you deal with so well. We need to be “understanding’ about ourselves and each other. We are growing to understand that feelings come unexpectedly, but feelings can change and be gone too.
[All this arises from me having previously used feelings I called "Mad, Bad, Sad or Glad" - for ease of them writing them! We used to check in on how much of each of those we're feeling right now, or had coursing through us when an incident occurred earlier in the day. I saw that feeling Bad is a strong feeling to deal with. They don't think it is low self esteem, So - more like high self esteem! They feel Bad that they have let themselves down, is what I'd describe it as.
Sorry my review is so LONG!

Exploring Emotions in 10 Minutes a Day

As an Elementary School Counselor, I have found this resource to be both useful and beneficial for the students I work with. I work in a Kindergarten- Grade 5 Elementary School, and I have found this resource to be helpful in small group work, as well as individual 1:1 counseling situations.
Thank you for creating this useful tool for children!

Earth Day Yoga Card Bundle

I teach kids and youth yoga at schools and use the Kids Yoga Stories cards as visuals and for games. The Earth Day bundle was a great addition for our yoga sessions. The children engage and love the visual ideas, poses and add their own. We also use them to create a flow or start off conversations. Thanks Kids Yoga Stories!

Creative and innovative

I like Giselle yoga cards. They have so many different options to offer and my students enjoy all the themes. They enjoy being characters from the cards. The yoga poses are simple and come with explanatory descriptions.
