Kindergarten students work and play hard throughout our school day. Having a five to ten minute quiet time each afternoon helps us to recharge. During quiet time, students may read a book, draw quietly, or rest while listening to soft music.
Research shows that switching activities, providing movement and practicing mindfulness allows the resting pathways of the brain to restore their calm focus and foster optimal mood, attention, engagement and memory. We will provide brain break opportunities throughout our day in kindergarten with free play, group exercise, dance, walking, mindful moments and more.
