BRING FOCUS AND CALM INTO YOUR CLASSROOM WITH OUR ANIMATED BREATHING & MINDFULNESS EXERCISES
Your students will love these 30 mindfulness breathing exercises and movement sensory breaks animated videos! These self-regulation exercises encourage students to be present in their bodies and minds. In particular, the brain breaks include exercises that involve breathing, bilateral coordination, and crossing the midline. Additionally they help to build gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and/or provide proprioceptive input. Plus, there’s also the option to integrate auditory input, too. Just use the narrated videos with carefully selected accompanying music.
These brain and body break videos are designed to help students self-regulate, focus, and feel more centered & calm. Not only are they easy to follow, they are fun to learn! Moreover, the movement and breathing exercises also work wonders with transitions and establishing routines. And perhaps most importantly, these animated mindfulness exercises help to shift reactive and/or disassociated energy into receptive and engaged energy.
Better than ANYTHING I have found commercially available or anything I could have made myself. Best for about Kindergarten to 3rd grade. I used with a group of second graders and I felt they were the perfect age to really love these.

I love this resource! WholeHearted School Counseling makes the best resources, and this is a perfect one for this year. Not only that, I can use it for in person classroom mindfulness as well. I love it. The illustrations are cute, and I like the variety of exercises!

I really enjoy using your resources! I am so happy that I found your materials, because they have been so beneficial to me and my students. I started using this resource with my students today, and I really like the animation aspect. I also like that I get to “turn off” my voice, and allow my students to hear the directions from a different source. Thank you for all of your helpful resources!!

I love mindfulness resources and I’m always looking for new resources! This is amazing! Not only are all the exercises super cute (and they go with other resources I’ve purchased from this seller), but they are narrated in case 1) I need to use them for distance learning, 2) a student is using them on their own, or 3) I’m not available and a student needs help regulating! Love these!

This is a great resource to explore different breathing and mindfulness activities. Easy to use in person or during remote learning. Its great to explore different exercises so children know which ones they like best and that they feel work for them. Brilliantly created.
