This class will be taught over a six-week period. During each class, children will learn a new word pertaining to practicing mindfulness ie mindfulness, attention, awareness, emotions, empathy/compassion, and kindness. There will be a book with a social story to help children understand how mindfulness can build coping skills, friendships, focus, and awareness in their lives. The class will have interactive sharing through zoom to hold kids' attention and to help them learn. Children will learn a new mindful movement and meditation each week to add to their coping skill toolbox. Each class will end with a fun mindful craft.
