Many teachers find it challenging to carve out time to teach basic social-emotional skills – yet focus and self-regulation are critical for academic performance and social awareness throughout a student’s life. An ideal solution is to find short but effective lessons that fit easily into your existing curriculum.

Mindful Classrooms provides that solution. Educator James Butler presents a 36-week guide for incorporating mindfulness into the school day with proved techniques that take just five minutes a day. This interactive, research-based curriculum offers clear, ready-to-use weekly formats that introduce easy-to-remember mindfulness tools and strategies to your students.

Teachers will find:

  • weekly guides with day-by-day exercises

  • full-colour photographs of stretching poses

  • clear, simple scripts for guided and intentional breathing and for mindful listening, seeing and eating

  • reflective exercises focused on topics including mutual respect, fairness, courage, perseverance, self-compassion, empathy and more

  • ideas for reviewing and wrapping up each week
