Mindfulness for Learning – Frazer Pre-K-8 School

Foundation Grants
Back to projects

Teachers in two Frazer School first grade classes will receive training as children’s yoga teachers so that the students can have formal yoga classes in their classroom but also incorporate the lessons throughout their day. The students will learn to focus their attention in a way that will improve their learning. The students will learn to be aware of their emotions and bodily sensations and what to do when they are struggling. The grant will provide a cool down corner in each classroom where students can take a break, use a breathing ball or their calming jar, read a mindfulness book, or listen to calming music. Their families will be invited to an event to see what the students have been learning, learn some yoga themselves, and take home some items to encourage practice at home, including a tool kit that each student will create for themselves with their personal most useful items. This will allow students to apply their learning at home and teach what they have learned to their families.
