Welcome back to some sunshine!
Today's mindfulness activity is to get active - when your work is done or you're taking a break, get outside for some exercise. Take a bike ride or a walk. Play some basketball or jump rope.

I hope you are doing well today. Today's message is simple...write down 3 things you are grateful for and share them with the people at your house. My three are: my family; technology so that I can connect with students and their families, my friends and family, and Titus peeps; and good cooking happening at our house these days!! :)
My video is below!!

Good day, Sunshine!
Good morning, Titus! I hope you are excited to have some sun and get outside to enjoy it today. Our exercises for today come from Miss Sharmann, who has been working with me as she completes her masters degree in school counseling. Thank you, Miss Sharmann! One is a breathing visual and the other is a fun Bingo game to use while you're at home. Have fun!

Mindful Awareness Exercises
Sit and Listen (MindUp’s “Core Practice”)
Children begin by sitting tall on the floor or in their chairs. Explain that they are going to train their brain to focus today. Tell them that you are going to make a sound with a chime (or bell) and they are to listen to the sound until it fades out and they can’t hear it any more, raising their hand when they can no longer hear it. Demonstrate and then they practice. Then take it to the next step and explain that they are going to do the same thing except this time but they will start with their eyes closed. When they can no longer hear the sound they are to open their eyes. Again, demonstrate and have them practice.

Hello, Titus families. Thank you for visiting our website. Mrs. Zonis and I have included lots of resources for parents and children to use over these coming weeks. Parents, we have included resources to help you navigate some tough discussions that may come up during this time; mindfulness practices; and social/emotional learning that the whole family can do together. There are videos below the links that are breathing exercises to practice mindfulness. Relax, have fun, and make the most of the situation we are in!
