Introducing: Introduction to Mindfulness
This past year has highlighted the growing need for social-emotional learning and mindfulness curriculum in schools. We are excited to announce that Intro to Mindfulness is now available in all PLT4M accounts!
Watch the video to meet our new instructor, Meghan Leighton, as she describes the new program:
Mindfulness is paying attention to what's happening on purpose with kindness, curiosity, without judgment. This program will address the key components and standards of social emotional learning including self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision making, relationship skills, and social awareness. Throughout this program, students will be introduced to key concepts around mindfulness and practice skills that they can apply to their everyday lives.
- 15 Total Lessons | 5 Sections of 3 Lessons
- Roughly 20 Minutes per Lesson
Each lesson will typically have some combination of 4 different parts:
Centering - allowing us to arrive and be present in our lesson together
Focus Topic Breakdown - learning about the background and breakdown of different elements of mindfulness
Movement - warming ourselves up and helping us to get ready for our full practice
Mindfulness Practice - putting mindfulness into action and building skills that we can continue using outside of class
Everyone! Grades 6-12. This is a great social emotional learning program for any student that has not had any previous formal mindfulness training.
No formal requirements, open to all students!
Each lesson has a short closing video that will invite students to a practice mindfulness on their own outside of class. These send off videos can easily be turned into assignments by a teacher.
