Smell test time!

Our animal for today was the sloth. Sloths are virtually blind (which contributes to why they are so slow) but they have an amazing sense of smell. So in honour of the sloth, we did a fun smell test in class today.

Bubble painting!

We had so much fun in class with our bubble painting. The children were able to visualize THE BREATH through the bubbles that were blown.

And then they studied their creations to find the hidden secrets. So many animals were found…penguins, sting ray, dolphin, leafy sea dragon and more!

mindfulness bracelets

Today in class the 6 year olds made mindfulness bracelets.

A great way to remind them to take 5 deep breaths when feeling dysregulated. They trace slowly over each bead taking a long, slow breath in and out for each bead.

In mindfulness, our breath is the anchor that keeps us grounded. We can turn to it at anytime but often we forget! A mindfulness bracelet is a great way to remind us.

The pause

Mindfulness is about the pause…

Taking a break from our thoughts and the constant internal chatter. It is about giving our minds and bodies time to rest. This helps us to slow down and find the pause that allows us to consciously respond instead of instinctively reacting to a difficult situation.

Guided visualisations and meditations are ideal for helping children practice taking a pause.
