In this full day workshop that combines both “The Calm and Connected Classroom” and “Mindfulness” teachers will learn best practices for incorporating social-emotional learning into the classroom. In the morning session teachers will learn techniques to manage stress in the classroom through social-emotional activities such as Social-Emotional Wheels, Finger Breathing, Take 4 Before, and the 1-Minute Challenge. In the afternoon session teachers will explore evidence pointing to the positive effects of mindfulness including increased lowered stress, greater ability to focus, self-awareness, as well as improvements in physical and mental health. Experiential activities include breathing, visualization and mindful moving techniques.
The Social and Emotional Learning Series will be presented by Joanna Schwartz.
