Today Maddy went independently into our mindfulness area and praticed mindful breathing!

Today Gabriel shared a mindfulness experience we learned about at the workshop. Each child chose a rock and spent time with it, then the rocks went back into the basket.  Children were invited to find their chosen rock.
