Building Focus and Attention Through Mindfulness (K-12)
Presenter: Kailey Lefko B.Sc. B.Ed. Certified Yoga Teacher and Co-founder of Educalme
When you’ve tried every classroom management strategy in the book and your students are still struggling to focus, it can feel impossible to get through a lesson let alone the impossibly large curriculum.
In this full day workshop, you will learn how focus and attention is built in the brain, how to approach focus and attention as a skill that has to be taught rather than a roadblock to your students’ success and how to train your students’ brains to focus through a mindfulness practice. You will leave the workshop with concrete strategies, tools and ready-to-use resources to teach mindfulness in the classroom as a means to develop focus and attention in your students.
Sign up for this workshop if you want to stop spending all of your energy managing your classroom and get back to the part you love – teaching.
