ACTIVITY CATEGORIES INCLUDE:
Conscious breathing is a powerful tool for self-regulation. Let’s Breathe activities help us to calm and center, or empower and energize.
AT YOUR DESK
These seated stretches and postures help provide physical relief from long periods of sitting, improve focus, and keep the systems of the body functioning efficiently. At Your Desk breaks will leave you and your students feeling refreshed and ready to focus on classroom instruction.
Stand Strong activities provide simple, structured opportunities for students and teachers to stand up and stretch, balance and strengthen.
Whether used before a test, as a physical break from a long assignment, or to help improve mood, Loosen Up activities can dispel stress through energetic release, or introspection and focus. Community-builders cultivate students who are leaders and problem-solvers, have good self-esteem, cooperate and collaborate, feel a sense of responsibility for their classroom and each other, and are more likely to be happy and relaxed.
Movement, healthy food, clean water, plenty of rest – all of these are necessary to good health. So are relaxation, positive attitude, good self-esteem, mutually supportive relationships, spiritual growth, and joy. The Be Well activity cards offer a framework for beginning child-friendly discussions related to topics supporting the health and wellness of the whole child. Use them as themes of the week, areas of study, or on their own as morning meeting topics.
Imagination Vacations offer modified, child-friendly approaches to meditation. Through guided visualization, students learn to use their imaginations to connect to their own inner wisdom. Through mindfulness practices, students learn to bring their awareness to the present moment, the necessary state for learning. Students are empowered as their sense of self is improved, and the connection between their mind and body is enhanced.
Reduce anxiety, support social and emotional learning, build connections and help kids get ready to learn in your virtual and in-person classroom.
Brilliant, full-color, interactive, easy-to-use and ready for immediate download.

67 Simple Practices
Features 67 yoga and mindfulness-based activity cards (front and back) which include illustrated instructions, discussion points, sub-activities, and educational tie-ins, for a total of more than 200 beneficial classroom practices.
Classroom and Mask-Friendly
The activities were specially chosen for their suitability for the typical classroom space. That means all activities can be done standing beside or sitting at desks, while bodies and hands remain off the floor, away from dirt and germs. All activities are also 'mask-friendly', meaning none requires excessive exertion.
Activities include a mix of yoga postures, brain boosting movements, breath exercises, visualizations, mindful focusing activities, creative movement, community-building games and wellness and character-building discussion points addressing the whole child - physical, social, emotional.
