Through 16 colorful, engaging PowerPoint slides you will walk students through modeling, guided practice, independent practice, pair-share closure and a senses activity to assist them in applying the skill of mindfulness.
“Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you carefully observe your thoughts and feelings without judging them good or bad. Instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to your current experience, rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future.”
