How do you teach students about self regulation? How do you even begin to make them aware of when they might be stressed? Then, what strategies do you offer even very young students to encourage them to take ownership of their regulation needs?
One resource we use at Dundana and throughout the HWDSB is “The Mind Up Curriculum: Focused Classroom, Mindful Learning, Resilient Students”. If you are interested in learning about the brain science we introduce to students, as well as the core practices they might engage in during class, please see the resource below. Every class is approaching the learning in Mind Up differently, but all students have been/will be exposed to the teaching in some way this year.
