Conscious Discipline

Although I hoped for a social emotional curriculum to aid in classroom management, I did not think any existed; however, Conscious Discipline is a social emotional curriculum designed to educate the whole child and help children make better choices.      Breathing is a huge part of the curriculum, as well as providing safe spaces (usually an area with a bean bag and box of calming tools, such as something to squeeze, glitter jar, poppers) in the classroom for children to learn self-regulation skills.    Sounds a lot like yoga.   Will Conscious Discipline solve all classroom management issues?   May be.   Will Conscious Discipline decrease a child’s inappropriate and/or unsafe behavior?  May be.    It just gives teachers more tools to use.

There is nothing cuter than a three-year old doing balloon breath.
