Journaling & Gratitudes with Ms.Kim
Happy Monday learners and families! This week we will be starting mindfulness from 8 to 8:30 in the morning. This is time for your learners to reset and prepare to tackle the day with a fresh mind. I will be leading a mindfulness activity titled “Journaling & Gratitudes” in (Conference Room 2 at AVPH). Learners will have the opportunity to write in their journals and release their personal thoughts, write things they are grateful for, or write down goals they have for the day. This activity will be a quiet one with relaxing music in the background that will help learners to start the day on a good note. Hope to see you there! -Ms. Kim
