Mindful Movement and a Listening Walk

Last week in Mindfulness and Movement we set up an obstacle course in one of the large rooms upstairs at school. Children crawled through a lion’s den, tip-toed on a zig-zag line on the floor, moved like a turtle, crab walked, and jumped over logs. Lots of fun to move our bodies!

This week we talked about our five senses and read the story ‘The Listening Walk’. After the book we went for our own listening walk in the neighborhood. Voices were off and we were listening to as many sounds as we could hear. When we got back to school we discussed all the different things we heard when we weren’t talking. Everyone did a wonderful job on our quiet, peaceful, listening walk. 🙂
