This is a great guide, however, I did not know that it is meant to be used in the classroom. I still found it very helpful and was able to apply many ideas and concepts at home.

Great product with plenty of supporting research. Teachers can gradually incorporate into their teaching. It's not a stand alone program, but a way of teaching and being.

This text is clearly laid out. I liked how there were some literature suggestions mentioned for most units to help dig deeper into the concepts. MindUp curriculum is not really a one resource program. It offers a clear way to teach mindfulness to students. However, I would not use this resource as the one and only for your emotional health/self regulation teaching. I will definitely be using some of the activity suggestions provided.

I do like the book. I totally get the concept of creating mindful children in thoughts and actions. But i have to say i found this book very wordy. Lots of stuff going on and to be honest hard to follow at times. A better layout would of been more productive and less confusing

Great resource! March 13 2012
By angnelz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am using this grade level and the K-2 book together with a small group of 3rd grade boys and girls with behavior needs who also needed some guidance away from egotism and onto optimism. Coupled with yoga and additional whole-class activities, we are making progress. We start and end each meeting with a triangle chime that the kids use to focus. When the echo of the chime is done, we begin or end; which is a great centering activity itself. They have enjoyed the hands-on experiments, art activities, and learning how the brain contributes to our ability to pay attention to detail, drown out the distractions, and appreciate the little things. This curriculum is easy to use, most days I can prep it just 5-10min before the lesson is held. Some lessons require household supplies, but are easy to acquire and can be creatively substituted. 4 stars becuase some of the content was a little "heavy" or too difficult for the 3rd graders, so I used ideas/references in the K-2 book. Easy enough to do this, when you have both books. Could prob use the K-2 book alone for 3rd graders and beef up the ideas or go a little deeper with the theme.

Teaching meditation concepts Jan. 2 2013
By dmriverview - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gives great suggestions about how to introduce meditation concepts in an easy to follow, creative manner. I especially loved the "brain bottle" containing sand, glitter and water to show what an "agitated brain" looks like and how meditation teaches it to calm down. I use it with my adult clients as well when I expalin how the amygdala creates chaos in our brains when we're upset.
