Mindfulness for Children 5 to 11 yo

Mindfulness in School, for Children 5 to 11 years old

An 8-week program to help children develop increased calmness, patience, and the ability to self-console.

This program is specifically designed for children 5 to 11 years old, using relevant real-life examples so that they can connect with the learning and implement it into their daily lives. For younger children (5-7) some lessons are slightly shorter and the workbook features drawing activities.

What we do in each session

Except the 1st class where I introduce the program, each session is set as follows:

1. Ring the chime and 1 to 2 min of mindful breathing

2. I ask them if they practiced the technique from the previous session

3. I introduce what we’ll learn in that session, including some questions for them to answer

4. Practice time

5. Time to share what they noticed

6. Questions (if any)

7. Conclusion of what we just learned

8. Invite them to practice for next session, in a different setting than the classroom

9. Ring the chime + 3 mindful breaths

At the end of the class, they will have 1 or 2 pages to complete in their workbook (a reminder of what they just learned) that they will do with the teacher at their own pace.

Children love the chime and the workbook!

What children have to say about this program

Many times when I’m angry, I hurt others. This helps me not be angry.

When my daddy annoys me very much, I calm down by breathing and afterwards my dad doesn't annoy me anymore.

When I told my dad I wanted chocolate and he told me to wait until my birthday, I used mindfulness to calm me down.
