If you can name your feeling, I will know how to help you.
Lets all take a deep breath.
Mr. Thomas has welcomed his friends to the carpet for a read aloud. Except for one friend that stands by the door crying to go home. She is new to the school and scared to make new friends.
Mr. Thomas asks the student to name her feeling. Sarai says she is nervous about making new friends. Mr. Thomas explains that nervousness is a normal feeling. We will take a mindful moment to refocus our attention.
Hands over our stomach, eyes closed... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. After our mindful moment let's reintroduce our selves to Sarai and say your favorite book.
