Being the caring pup she is, Pepper would like to share her brain breaks using mindfulness with you at no cost!
Like all students and teachers, Pepper can sometimes find herself overwhelmed or exhausted. She uses these relaxing moves, based loosely on Tai Chi, and gave them visually memorable names, to help re-center, re-focus, and re-energize. These mindfulness moves can be done in regular clothing in the classroom. Four of the five moves can be done seated if necessary.
If desired, Spanish or French teachers can easily edit the names of the poses to make it more appropriate for early language courses, e.g., Flamingo becomes Flamenco or Flamant.
If you wish to make this product into a learning station, simply print out the slides in color, laminate them and hang them on a wall with a timer and tell the students to do each pose for thirty seconds. Students get the biggest kick out of that. This activity is most appropriate for elementary school or grades K-5 (ages 4-10).
Feel free to take advantage of this small gift from Schnauzer Productions. Whether you teach math, physics, Spanish or French, mindfulness is a great way for everyone to feel better. From Pepper's family to yours, happy learning!
