Mind Up

Since the start of the school year we have been using our classroom chime for mindful breathing. It helps us get calm and better focussed on our learning. Ms. Lirenman learned about the chime through a program called MindUp.

Today we started working through the official program and we talked about our brain and how it works. We learned about the Prefrontal Cortex, the Amygdala, and the Hippocampus and we can say all those words too. Here is a poster that we now have hanging in our classroom to help us remember.

  1. I am really interested in doing MindUp in our classroom. My daughter took the course in university and said it was very helpful in teaching children how to calm themselves. I'll check back with you to see how you like using it.
