Workshop Description:
Mindfulness, or reflective awareness, allows us to be intentionally present in each moment and fully engaged with our surroundings through a gentle and nurturing lens. Studies have shown that mindfulness can also support teachers and students in preventing stress and burnout, boosting positive relationships, and lengthening attention span. Join Kimberly Munoz as she shares strategies for infusing the practice of mindfulness into your curriculum that will bring calm to your classroom. Participants will also have an opportunity to experience a mindful breathing exercise for themselves and walk away with resources they can use immediately to help everyone feel more comfortable, safe, and relaxed.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain at least two benefits of incorporating the practice of mindful breathing in school.
  • Demonstrate a breathing pattern that helps relax and calm the mind from stress and anxiety.
  • Utilize the resources provided (print, audio, and video) to create a mindfulness lesson that can be used in the classroom.

  • Special Technology Instructions:
    Participants will need access to an internet device and a non-school, personal Google account. SimpleK12ís Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.

    Participants will respond to a discussion prompt to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
