Guest post by Grade 2 Teacher, Liana O’Brien:
Grade 2 has been practicing mindfulness. We do mindful activities in our classrooms, the lunchroom, and in Español. Recently, each of us wrote our own guided meditation, which means a story you can imagine in your head while relaxing and clearing your mind. The reason we wrote our own mindful minutes is because we have been practicing mindfulness a lot and felt inspired. Also, we didn’t really enjoy the voice on Headspace and thought it could be fun to write and record our own voices. Ms. Davis helped us create our own Google site called Mindful Minutes which can be put on your classroom iPads as an app if you’re interested in practicing more. Each recording is only around a minute long.
