Mrs. Emily Parker Johnston at Stanley School, last week incorporated exercises in her Kindergarten. The exercise recognized both emotional and mental well-being as part of their total body health.
The class did listening activities, circle shares, and “wows” to show they are listening to what one another said. They also spoke kind words about each other.
Another activity gave the kids an opportunity to practice gratitude where they wrote notes to people in their lives to show how thankful they were for them. The class completed breathing techniques and mindful exercises like guided meditations.
