Written especially for the teacher or camp director who wants to bring mindfulness, social and emotional learning (SEL), and the arts into their busy day through storytelling and fun games, this book offers a complete course that helps kids identify and talk about their feelings, self-regulate and self-soothe when stressed, and learn from easy mindfulness practices.
Hi Everyone! I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself. I am the author of the popular children’s book “Puppy Mind”, which brought a new dimension of cuteness to the practice of mindfulness in the form of a rambunctious, playful puppy. In my new book, “Mindful Arts in the Classroom”, I bring the puppy and a host of other friendly characters into the classroom to animate a 21-lesson curriculum centered around lively stories and easy-to-lead exercises for young students from kindergarten to third grade. There is a teacher’s guide to arts-based mindfulness exercises utilizing story-telling, theater games, and drawing to spark students’ self-expression, self-awareness, and social and emotional well-being.
