Mindful Morning Meetings are an intentional way to start the day in a calm and supportive manner. Each week focuses on a specific social emotional learning goal, helping children identify their emotions, practice conflict resolution skills, learn self-regulation strategies, and more. This Mindful Morning Meeting curriculum has been used very successfully in K-5 classes for 2 years.
The Mindful Morning Meeting units contain 4 days, 8 weeks of completely scripted daily 10-15 minute lessons. Each weekly lesson builds upon the previous week and includes a vocabulary word wall. No teacher preparation is needed.
The Mindful Morning Meeting: The Brain and Mindfulness is the second unit in the Mindful Morning Meeting curriculum. Children learn about their amazing brains and become empowered to "train the brain", fostering growth mindset and self-regulation. This unit is also chock-full of strategies for calming the mind and body, including breathing techniques, yoga poses, and a script for mindful "brain breaks". Again, these strategies have been used very successfully in our pre-K- 5th grade elementary school for the past two years.
