About Discover ME - A Mindful Education
The Discover ME stories, discussions, and activities teach children specific skills and
strategies on what they can do to manage their own behavior. Discover ME is designed
to teach children at an early age ‘how to learn’ by teaching these essential skills that
have a positive influence on learning – impulse-control, self-awareness, how to pay
attention and listen, how to focus, be present, and breathe with intention. Those skills,
not only facilitate learning, but encourage mindfulness.
The Discover ME stories, discussions, and activities are designed to teach these
essential skills that create the foundation for learning – the prerequisites for learning.
Impulse-control, self-awareness, how to pay attention and listen, how to focus, be present,
and breathe with intention are all abstract concepts.
Discover ME is designed to take those abstract or invisible concepts and make them visible
to children. Participating in these stories, discussions, and activities gives children a clear
understanding of what those concepts mean. The more they practice those concepts,
the better they get at incorporating those essential skills into their everyday lives.
Those skills and strategies create the foundation that builds and strengthens emotional maturity, which, in turn, fosters self-empowerment. Those skills and strategies equip children with the ability to take control of their own lives by CHOOSING positive words and actions.
Discover ME stimulates developmental growth by teaching specific techniques and strategies designed to strengthen those essential skills that create the foundation for learning. These activities build social and emotional learning skills through self-awareness and the practice of mindfulness – teaching children how to pay attention.
Through the practice of mindfulness, Discover ME is designed to teach children how to:
Manage their own behavior.
Take responsibility for their actions.
Stop and think about the consequences for what they choose to say and do.
Make mindful choices.
Resolve conflicts peacefully.
