Creating a Mindful Environment for ALL Students to Learn: From Stress to Success!

Details

Now more than ever, teaching mindfulness in the classroom is a necessity. Our students are stressed and anxious. Teachers and parents are stressed and anxious, too. Our lives are busy, and we often find our thoughts buzzing over the past or worrying about the future. Press the “pause button”. We need mindfulness because it teaches us to live in the present moment, enjoying and experiencing what’s in front of us. Educators know that students learn best when they are comfortable, safe and relaxed. Come to this session to discover and explore innovative and motivational opportunities for students to practise and extend their skills while facilitating independent learning. 

Objectives and Outcomes 

  • Learn techniques to engage students productively and positively with strategies to develop their social and emotional skills 
  • Implement key practices to create an engaging environment that supports a creative, caring and collaborative classroom environment 
  • Increase student productivity, achievement and enthusiasm for learning 
  • Develop highly effective strategies that reduce students’ anxiety, jumpstart their thinking and set the stage for academic success
