After collaborating with the Center for Healthy Minds at UW-Madison, Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) Education has released Kindness in the Classroom, a new video series designed to give pre-K and kindergarten educators an introduction and foundation in the positive effects of teaching mindfulness in a classroom setting, share insights from teachers with experience implementing the Kindness Curriculum, and offer an opportunity to practice mindfulness.
The series focuses on implementing the Kindness Curriculum: a free, 24-lesson, mindfulness-based guide designed for early learners that has been researched and developed by the Center for Healthy Minds, a global leader in the scientific research of the mind, emotions and well-being. The video series and accompanying resources are available for free online access at WPTeducation.org/kindness.
“The Center for Healthy Minds’ Kindness Curriculum had been researched and developed, and they were looking for ways to welcome more early-learning educators to the practice of classroom mindfulness,” said Megan Monday, WPT Education’s executive producer. “We developed Kindness in the Classroom to provide educators with multiple entry points into the practice.”
