Reading tips: creating a successful learning experience

Parents

Ways to make lifestyle choices a regular routine, everyday.

  • • Connect with children and build communication.
  • • Encourage their self worth and awareness.
  • • Great for nighttime reading to release any emotional and physical hang-ups before sleep.
  • • Most importantly during or after an emotional upset.
After Reading

Open the lines of communication with the child in your life!

Feel It Out!
  • Have you ever tried something for the first time?
  • What was it? What was new about it? Or what was going on at the time?
  • What emotions did you feel?
  • How did your body FEEL before the new experience, possibly during it, and after?
  • Have you ever felt like Ebilina?
  • Did you have butterflies in your tummy? Was your heart pounding? Were you sweaty or warm inside your body? Do you still feel like that?
Breathe It Out!
  • Let’s try the breathing and see how we feel afterward.
  • Is your “mind quieter”? It should feel still like water on a pond on a calm, still no-wind day : )

  • • Helps kids “quiet their minds” and prepare for the day ahead.
  • • Helps teach kids to release unnecessary “mind-“chatter”, silencing the negative chatter buzzing around and  helps with organizing thoughts, tasks and school as well as home projects.
