What is the Mindfulness Curriculum?
This program offers 8 lessons structured to align with Iowa’s CASEL Top 5 standards. Within each lesson, students receive time to become more self-aware, are given opportunities to self-manage, as well as be cognizant of their social interactions and decisions. The layout of each lesson remains consistent in structure, although each lesson centers around a main idea with varied supplemental activities.
