Kindness and Compassion

3 practices for grades K4-8

These practices will help students notice their own feelings in their mind and body when being kind or having a positive experience. Instead of focusing on what others are feeling or saying, the awareness of one's own experience can become the motivator for continued positive choices, resulting in happier and more positive classrooms. 

Kind Thoughts

Practice Description: This practice is designed to cultivate connection with others, and to bring intentions of kindness and comfort for ourselves, especially when life’s emotions pull us down. The phrases are meant to plant seeds within us for safety, happiness, good health, and peace.

5 Finger Gratitude

Practice Description: Gratitude, or appreciation, is a thought or feeling of being thankful for someone or something.  Paying attention to what we appreciate can take our mind off what is bothering us and lighten our mood. When we appreciate moments of happiness, warmth or joy in our day, we are also training our mind to be more positive, which can increase the natural frequency of these thoughts.

Calming Your Nerves to Take a Test

Practice Description: This practice can help to manage nerves for taking a test. Nervous feelings and behaviors are normal during a test, but too many strong feelings can prevent us from being able to access our best thinking. By noticing and identifying our stressful thoughts and feelings, we might better focus and support ourselves to get through the test.
