These elementary students had the opportunity to make their own Mind Jars. Used as a prompt when students are experiencing strong emotions, Mind Jars provide a visual focus with a few moments for purposeful breathing.

I would highly recommend the program to other schools.” -8th Grade Teacher
“The person who has impacted my life is my mindfulness teacher. She has made hard times in my life easier to deal with. Her teaching me mindfulness has reduced my stress levels and made me realize that everything isn’t always as bad as it seems. She has made my life a lot more happy and less stressful. Thanks to mindfulness I’ve learned to reset myself and think positive. So thank you for everything you’ve taught me. I appreciate every lesson we’ve had.” -Sophomore from Riverside High School
“My students found the mindfulness sessions to be peaceful and relaxing. This is something they have done in the past, but were not used to resetting their feelings. This program helped them rediscover that. I personally found that my students are more receptive to their lessons after our mindfulness sessions. This program should be in every school because it helps calm the students and gets them to think about themselves for a change. I look forward to continuing the mindfulness sessions with my students. Thank you for taking the time to help calm our classroom.” -7th Grade Teacher
“Amy taught us many wonderful strategies that we use regularly in our classroom. Her positive energy was well received by my firsties. It is very important for our students to have strategies to help them refocus and maintain control. I highly recommend this program and Amy! Hoping she’ll be back next year.” -1st Grade Teacher
During Spring of the 2018 school year, Reset provided In-Classroom Mindfulness programming to 143 classrooms in the Milwaukee Metropolitan area. A majority of teachers from these classrooms shared that they had been using mindfulness strategies, specifically “7 Shakes” and “Flower Hands”, with their students before testing to promote calm focused energy and confidence.
“I would recommend this program to other schools and classes because of it’s positive effect on the students’ performance.” -4th Grade Teacher
“Kids loved and appreciated all the mindful strategies. This added on to some skills they knew. I loved seeing them take ownership over their actions and practice those skills in and outside of our classroom community.” -4th Grade Teacher
We love seeing how schools implement mindfulness lessons into their school culture! Below are a few drawings from a local school’s Grades 1-5 Special Ed Class.
