i am me because of you

After every lunchtime when the students have eaten and played we take time to relax and wind down. We take the students through a ten minute guided mediation. It calms them and sets them up for success for the rest of the afternoon. The focus and learning is so obvious with clear benefits.

Today we took things one step further. While the students were in the up right position we had them think about what it is they need to do next. What is their learning intention? What is the next thing they need to do after they have carefully thought about it? The students planned their own learning. They had become the teacher. This was a prime example of students becoming independent learners. Give it a try!

    I love doing meditation. It really helps to calm you down. You can focus on what you are going to do next. You can plan the rest of the day calmly. Because the body has had a chance to rest and relax, it works better and you think better. I think before doing meditation, the afternoon classes went slowly and I was always feeling tired after eating lunch. I love meditation!!!

    They are meditating. They are meditating to push everything away. To focus on themselves, and block every distraction. Meditation really calms me down. You have a relaxed mind ready for learning. Especially when Mr. Chad massages your head.

    They are meditating. They are doing this because after morning classes, they can be cool and calm, clear their mind and relax. This is important because it allows them to become refreshed for afternoon classes. This will help them concentrate in class and while doing their homework after school.
