Students learn best when they are in the right state of mind. Mindfulness is one tool that helps students learn to self regulate, deal with strong emotions, and deescalate situations. As with everything else, the teacher sets the tone and needs to be the anchor in the room.
Establishing a basic understanding of how mindfulness can set the stage for peace and productivity in the classroom. By practicing simple routines and teaching students strategies for school and for life, students can focus their energy and attention on learning. These tools directly impact a students’ ability to be successful in mathematics. It is critical that students develop a healthy math identity in order to unleash their greatest potential.
