          a back to nature event for families

          with children ages 8-13  

  

   Mindfulness Project 2014   

 

This summer, we will be concentrating on developing children’s social and emotional skills, especially through mindfulness activities. We will build skills in self-control, self-awareness, empathy for others, and learning how to deal with stress. Teachers often tell children to “pay attention” but may not show them how to do so. Mindfulness teaches children (and adults) how to pay attention– and being able to pay attention facilitates both social-emotional and academic learning.

We believe optimal development and learning are enhanced when a teacher is truly present with a child, and focused on what is happening at a particular moment. Building secure relationships with our children is essential for them to thrive physically, emotionally, and cognitively.

 

Desired outcomes:

Children will learn mindfulness skills and techniques to help them focus and concentrate, to think about actions before they act, to increase calm and decrease stress.

We will practice impulse control as we increase self-awareness.

We will work on recognizing emotions, and how to deal with them.

We will build physical skills as we do movement activities, including yoga.

We will continue to build awareness and a sense of caring for the natural world, especially all the living creatures of our world, including building empathy for each other.

We strive to guide children as they develop into responsible adults, who are mindful in their actions, know how to reduce stress, and care about other people and the earth. We want them to develop a relationship with nature that nurtures and sustains them.

We will share resources with our families as we learn mindful activities and stress reducing techniques to help us all build healthy lives. We invite our families to participate in our activities, and to share their knowledge with us as we continue on our mindfulness journey.

Helping children to grow and develop into confident, thinking persons who will succeed in the world is a fundamental program goal. We will continue to nurture children’s bonds with the natural world: linking mental, physical, and spiritual health directly to an association with nature. Also of critical importance is social emotional learning and self regulation skills, along with the development of caring and empathy. Encouraging these skills lays a firm foundation for successful growth and development as children continue their learning adventures in school.
