Mind Body Align At School


Ready students for learning and help students self-regulate using an easy-to-make Social Emotional Learning (SEL): DIY Mind Jar Activity. Students will love this activity, and you will have an SEL learning opportunity and a tool that will last the entire school year. This is our gift to you!

The DIY Calming Mind Jar Lesson and Poster provides a lesson plan in seconds! The poster is so clearly designed, and this activity is simple enough to execute as a class or individually at an SEL station in your classroom. When students need to calm down, help themselves transition, or self-regulate, their mind jar will be there for them. 

You could even make just a few mind jars and have them available for students who need them. When there is classroom chaos, immediately change the game!  

The mind jar is an amazingly effective SEL tool, and these free instructional materials are Mind Body Align’s gift to you. Create the classroom environment of your dreams by working in just minutes of SEL every single day. The graphics are all original art, and the characters are unique to the MBAwareness Educational Program. This poster and lesson is great for all ages! I often hold my mind jar when I am in Zoom meetings!

Using the mindful attention techniques in this lesson benefits everyone of every age.
