Designed for educators who are teaching mindfulness in their classrooms or small groups, these mindfulness worksheets keep students focused and allow them to thoughtfully reflect on each lesson. In my own experience teaching mindfulness to high schoolers, I found that some students needed a little more structure to keep them focused on the mindfulness lessons, especially after we had been practicing for a while. They needed something other than just listening to me talk at the front of the room! I designed these worksheets to keep the students engaged during the lessons, and I have found myself quite moved at the honesty in which they express themselves in the questions and the reflection.
Each worksheet in this series includes a lesson, followed by a prompt called “Let’s Practice,” which cues student and teacher that it is time to do mindfulness practice. Following the practice, the students are directed to write a reflection from what they learned from the day’s lesson and mindfulness practice. Lastly, the students are given a challenge from the lesson to take into their week.

Editable schedule with suggested order of lessons
There are 11 lessons included, but I make this a 12 lesson unit by including one lesson called "Mindfulness on the Quicks" in which we practice mindfulness without a worksheet (so the students know they can do this without a worksheet). This lesson title is included on the editable schedule, but there is no actual lesson for it as it is the teacher's choice.
