180 Days of Mindfulness
If you dig deep into my blog posts you'll see that I've written quite a bit about incorporating mindfulness into the classroom, and it has never felt more important than this year (2020/2021).
Since moving to remote and hybrid learning models due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have redoubled my commitment to starting each class with a "mindful moment." Sometimes that just means taking a few deep breaths along with a moving gif; sometimes we follow along to a meditation video; or other times we'll do a few minutes of journaling or reflection based on a quote.
Because one of my personal self-care practices is bulking tasks in order to be able to reuse materials quickly and easily for recurring tasks and routines, I have been collecting "mindful moments" to use for each 180 school days of the year, and because I believe in teachers not "reinventing the wheel" I am more than happy to share my curation efforts with you.
