Classroom Management #3 - Quiet Your Head / Mind



  • “Quieting Your Head” is like meditation and mediation has many known health benefits including reducing stress.

  • How do I do it? Take a breath and notice your breathing.

  • You will start to feel more relaxed.

  • It sounds kind of strange but the idea is to go beyond the mind to a place of stillness and peace.

  • After quieting your mind, you may find yourself more alert and able to focus better on your classroom assignments, activities and discussions.

Meditation Activity

  • We will take 5 minutes each day to sit in silence to quiet your mind.

  • What should you do during this silence? Try to focus on your breath.  Notice your breathing.

  • If you find yourself thinking of thoughts, bring yourself back to your breath as often as you can remember.

  • You will get better at calming your mind the more often you meditate.
