Our mission here at Educalme is to help you and your students to thrive in a calm and focused learning atmosphere.
Biologically speaking, our brains and bodies just aren’t built to learn new things or perform at our best when we’re feeling big emotions like stress, worry or anxiousness.
We have a tool to help you and your students get out of the stress response and back into a state where your bodies and brains are calm, focused and ready to learn (and teach)!
It’s called mindfulness, the practice of appreciating the present moment, one breath at a time.
You can start right now.
Inhale. Feel yourself inhaling.
Exhale. Notice how it feels to exhale.
There you go, you’ve taken the first step (or breath) on your mindfulness journey.
As a reminder to pause during the day to breathe and appreciate the moment (no matter how chaotic the day gets) here’s a poster from our online social-emotional learning program for the classroom – our gift to you and your students!
So before you dive into academics, take the time as a class to inhale and exhale slowly. Do that a couple times with your students. Put up your poster as a visual reminder for students (and you!) to take deep breaths during the school day. See how it transforms focus and learning in your classroom!
If you feel ready to dive into starting a mindfulness practice in your classroom, try the ready-to-use online mindfulness program for the classroom, Educalme Classroom, for free. Educalme Classroom gives you and your students the tools, strategies and common vocabulary to manage emotions and behaviours. The free trial gives you over a month of audio and printable mindfulness lessons for the classroom. No prep required! And bonus, it never expires!
Plus, in the Free Trial, you’ll get access to these other posters and activities too!
Wherever you are in your journey of sharing mindfulness with your students, we’re here to cheer you on and support you so that you can thrive in a calm and focused learning atmosphere!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We’re here to help and we love hearing from you!
With calm and appreciation,
