Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn basic information about mindfulness and emotions, have the opportunity to practice many different mindfulness strategies while having fun, and will have an effective way of managing their stress and emotions when they are upset.
As a school social worker, I have been working with students in preschool through 8th grade for 14 years on topics such as coping skills, identifying emotions, and practicing mindfulness.
There is no homework assigned, but students are encouraged to practice the mindfulness techniques between classes.
Supplies for Week 5 to make the stress ball and glitter jar:
Stress ball-12" balloon (preferably just colored without a design on it), flour, funnel, sharpie marker, yarn, scissors
Glitter jar-A sturdy empty 16 ounce plastic bottle with a lid (for example, an empty water bottle)
1/2 cup of clear glue
1-2 teaspoons of glitter (color of your choice)
Measuring cups (1/2 cup and 1 teaspoon)
Distilled water preferred, but can use tap water (distilled water will keep the glitter jar mold-free)
Food coloring of your choice (optional)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students may require minimal supervision/assistance when making the craft items (glitter jar and stress ball).
