Earth Day: a day to spread inspiration and knowledge on doing our part to keep our beautiful Earth functional and strong.
Mindful Moment: Pause for a minute and think about the relationships between various living things here on Earth.
Those quiet moments may have brought about peace and appreciation for all of the beauty that our world has to offer or your mind may have become overwhelmed with feelings of frustration on all the things that we could be doing for our planet. Wherever you are on that spectrum, acknowledge and embrace your feelings.
With those feelings, envision one new habit you could launch that would inspire the children in your home or classroom to follow. Maybe it is...
It can be easy to forget how often our children and students look to us for guidance. Most often it is through quiet observation-especially with older kiddos. Earth Day is no different. But on this day we can be even more influential as members of our community come together for a similar purpose; to raise awareness for the powerful relationship between living things here on Earth.
So this week, consider keeping it simple. Choose an activity to be more mindful of - one that is practical for all ages. One that can develop into a sustainable habit that benefits the living things here on Earth. Begin to model that behavior, while using explicit - yet simple - language to explain the rationale behind it. Add a proud smile and you may just create a ripple effect.

I'm obsessed. This is fabulous. LOVE that you are doing this. The new way of being a student forces us to think outside the box and approach how we teach more dynamically.
