Mindfulness in the Classroom at Glendale Elementary in Madison, WI

by | Aug 20, 2015 | Blog, Videos

Some Wisconsin elementary school teachers are incorporating simple mental exercises in the classroom to promote well-being, thanks to a partnership between the Madison Metropolitan School District and the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Waisman Center.

The center worked with 5th grade classroom teachers and other personnel at Glendale Elementary in Madison during the 2014-15 school year, sharing practices with teachers and students to improve attention and students’ emotion regulation skills.

Education experts at the center are finding diverse ways to share these skills with kids, including songs and pop culture.

The center has released a video featuring the center and the Glendale students:
