    I would like to stay connected to you while we are learning from home.  I have created a Google Classroom for School Counseling, which I would love if you joined.  I will post information about the character traits of the month, share information about how to stay calm, and post fun activities to keep you busy.  You may also see Mr. Moscowitz or myself reading a book!

    Stop, Think, Breathe

    This fantastic app is chock-full of calming mindfulness breathing exercise. This is perfect for students needing to calm and refocus. The exercises are around 5-8 minutes and also allow students to use emojis to track their feelings before and after.

    Mindful Powers

    https://mindfulpowersforkids.com/

    Through a series of progressive voice-guided stories, kids learn how to master the powers of mindfulness - the ability to know and understand what is happening in one's head at any given moment without getting carried away by it.  Before each story, kids sooth their very own Flibbertigibbet who is in an agitated state with the touch of their finger.  This sensory-based repetitive interaction triggers the body's rest and digest response, helping kids relax and gain focus.

    As the title states, this is a great app for young children who are learning to identify feelings. This app is also helpful for students who struggle to recognize facial expressions in others. Users are given a scenario (like the picture below) and asked to select the emoticon that matches how the character is feeling.
