This delightful sequel to Moody Cow Meditates reintroduces us to Peter (aka Moody Cow) and meet his mischievous "boys-will-be-boys" friend Bully. Along the way we meet a snake named Jaws, who also goes on to appear in Peter's terrifying dreams, and watch as Bully revels in the deaths of the crickets he feeds the snake. Peter is uncomfortable with the plight of the little creatures, earning him a new nickname: "Coward Cow" because Bully thinks he's a wimp. Once again, Grandfather, the beloved old steer from Moody Cow Meditates, brings serenity and long-horned wisdom as he gently teaches to compassionately identify with other beings. And the story ends with everyone sharing a laugh - and even Jaws and the crickets are happy. This book also includes two activities - compassionate cricket release and compassionate worm rescue - for parents and children to do together.

In today's schools, students and teachers feel unprecedented—even alarming—levels of stress. How can we create calmer classrooms in which students concentrate better and feel more positive about themselves and others? Author Thomas Armstrong offers a compelling answer in the form of mindfulness, a secular practice he defines as the intentional focus of one's attention on the present moment in a nonjudgmental way. In Mindfulness in the Classroom, Armstrong - Explains how mindfulness affects the structure and function of the brain. - Provides an overview of mindfulness as both a personal practice and a classroom methodology that aligns with such educational models as Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS), and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). - Shares and explains the extensive research that shows the positive effects of mindfulness practices in the classroom. - Describes how to adapt mindfulness for different grade levels, integrate it into regular school subjects, and implement it schoolwide. - Offers guidelines for teaching mindfulness responsibly, without religious overtones. Dozens of observations from teachers, students, researchers, and practitioners provide striking evidence of the power of mindfulness and offer hope to anyone who wants to make classrooms more productive places of learning.

Meditation Program for School age Children

This scholarly work acknowledges that children experience stress and have similar physical responses to stress as adults (Fisher, 2006; Hagen & Nayar, 2014; Sharrer & Ryan-Wenger, 2002). Jean Watson’s (2008) nursing theory, The Philosophy and Science of Caring, provides a foundation for the project. The purpose of this scholarly work is to develop an age-appropriate meditation program for school-age children. The inspiration for this project is a book titled Moody Cow Meditates by Kerry MacLean (2009). The book uses a “mind jar meditation” to promote relaxation. A similar primary prevention program for school-age children, including the “mind jar” technique was created. A partnership was developed with a small Midwestern elementary school and PE teacher. Elements of mindfulness meditation were taught to kindergarten through fifth grade students in a forty-five minute PE class. Education about meditation and its benefits was presented to the teachers and a nine question survey was administered during a staff development meeting following the intervention. The results of the project and presentation reveal that teaching meditation in elementary schools is feasible and enjoyable by both the students and teachers.
