The children have been working hard writing, rehearsing, and presenting their mindfulness scripts this term. They have explored what it means to engage in mindful activities such as mindful breathing, eating, cooling down and art-making. This public speaking and wellness assignment supports our learning in the following areas:

Language Arts
  • used criteria about the content, language and delivery to structure their speeches
  • incorporated descriptive language to create visualizations for the audience

Health Education
  • they explored practices that support physical and emotional development 

Visual Arts
  • created title pages that represented the theme of their scripted speech

Social Responsibility
  • exercised democratic rights and responsibilities by identifying simple ways to improve the school, community and world.

An important goal of this project was to support my students' self-regulation skills. Please read this article for more information.
