Close your eyes. Think about a room where at least five things are going on at the same time. The noise level may be at various levels including levels of loud and soft, sounds of music, and other conversations fill the air. Now think about your body in this space. How do you feel? What might you do if more activities happened? You were not feeling well? You had something exciting happening in a week? Your tired? Open your eyes.
Begin to reflect think about these ideas before you go any further. Feel free to post your ideas on our blog!
Now after you have reflected think about your children whether they be your own children or those in your classroom. How do you think they are feeling in the same scenarios described above? Keep in mind, some of these children have never been to school before, might not have the language or exposure to calming their body and they have only been on this earth for one to five years (or older depending on where you work/live with)?
Keep this post in your thoughts and reflections on your drive home tonight. I want you all to be able to have some reflection time before I begin to offer ideas for you and your children!
