Mindfulness books

Mindfulness books for kids

Everybody gets stressed, even students. However, they can be taught to cope and manage it by becoming aware of their own feelings and finding ways to be centered, calm and able to just let go of worry. These are books below that are suitable for elementary students and they are all about helping children to have mindfulness so that they can prevent anxiety and depression from developing. The last three books are helpful guides for parents and teachers.

Love this list of mindfulness resources. Thanks so much for sharing. I have a couple of them and have now managed to track down the rest at our local library. We are embedding mindfulness in our school curriculum and these book suggestions will support our work. :-)

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
