Banner Day Camp's staff and author of "Mindful Students-Social and Emotional Learning in the Classroom and Beyond", Lani Gerszonovicz leads k-5 students in powerful, fun and engaging A-Z Mindfulness strategies which can be practiced almost anytime and anywhere. Mindfulness is the practice of being aware and focusing on the present moment. Students learn mindfulness strategies while paying attention to the body, breath and mind. Scientific studies show that a consistent mindfulness practice produces changes in brain volume in areas associated with increased focus, memory and processing and decreased stress and anxiety, making students more attentive and available for learning.
