Books to Bring into the Classroom
We love this book! Used as a read aloud, it can model for students how everyone has bad days, but there are ways to cope. Children will identify with what Hal goes through on his "worst Wednesday" and discover how bad days can turn around for the better.
This beautifully and whimsically illustrated book invites students to feel mindful. This book illuminates the basic tenets of mindfulness through feeling connected to the Earth, grounded in the self, and present with the world around them.
If you are looking for a book to help you integrate mindfulness-based practices into your classroom, look no further! Breathe like a Bear has 30 simple and short breathing and movement practices that help students learn how to stoke kindness for others, calm their bodies, and settle their minds.
