Food Boxes- Pickup sites and times

Greetings,

This is just a reminder and update for families who previously received delivered student meal boxes. Nutrition Services offers grab-and-go meal boxes every Wednesday through June. Each meal box (bags) contains four “heat and eat” breakfasts and lunches, plus five dinner meals. Vegetarian, no gluten, reduced-fat milk/soy milk options, and other dietary restrictions or allergen options are available. Locations are listed below.


There are three options for accessing student meals right now:

  1. Pickup from one of the six middle schools on WEDNESDAYS only, 12:45-2:15
  2. Pickup from the Ed Center Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, by arrangement (between 7am-6pm if we know you are coming)
  3. Take home bag from school kitchen

Pickup from Middle Schools Wednesday 12:45–2:15 only

The weekly meal boxes can be picked up between 12:45–2:15 p.m. at six 4J middle schools:

  1. Cal Young Middle School, 2555 Gilham Road
  2. Kennedy Middle School, 2200 Bailey Hill Road
  3. Madison Middle School, 875 Wilkes Drive
  4. Monroe Middle School, 2800 Bailey Lane
  5. Roosevelt Middle School, 500 E. 24th Ave.
  6. Spencer Butte Middle School, 500 E. 43rd Ave.

Pickup from Ed Center/Nutrition Services

If you cannot pickup on Wednesday from a middle school, you can arrange to pickup from the Ed Center. Reply to this message with how many students and if you need any special restrictions or allergen accommodations. Generally, staff are available from 7-5, but if you need a different time, let us know and we will try to accommodate your schedule.


Take home from School Kitchen

If you are in onsite learning, you may reach out to the kitchen team and they can put together a small take home bag (e.g. 1-2 days of food). Let us know if you need help making this arrangement.


We know that transportation issues and times are not ideal for all families. We will try to work something out with you to support your students while we all continue to navigate this crazy year.

Walk and Roll to school


Our school is participating in the May Walk+Roll to School Challenge and we need your help! Our goal is for as many students as possible to increase their physical activity and help the planet by walking, biking, scooting, skating, using a mobility device and riding the school bus to get to and from school!


If you live too far to walk or bike and want to ride the bus, check in with the Transportation Department. Or, you could Park 'n' Stride. This involves parking a 10 minute (or more) walk away from school and walking the rest of the way.


This is the time to try something new or to make a habit out of something you've only tried before! Join us this May in walking and rolling to school!



Caminar + rodar a la escuela


¡Nuestra escuela está participando en el Desafío de May Walk + Roll to School y necesitamos su ayuda! ¡Nuestro objetivo es que la mayor cantidad de estudiantes posible aumenten su actividad física y ayuden al planeta caminando, en bicicleta, en patineta, patinando, usando un dispositivo de movilidad y viajando en el autobús escolar para ir y volver de la escuela!


Si vive demasiado lejos para caminar o andar en bicicleta y desea viajar en autobús, consulte con el Departamento de Transporte. O bien, podría Park 'n' Stride. Esto implica estacionarse a 10 minutos (o más) a pie de la escuela y caminar el resto del camino.


¡Este es el momento de probar algo nuevo o convertir en hábito algo que solo ha probado antes! ¡Únase a nosotros este mayo para caminar y rodar a la escuela!

Picture day will be here soon!

ICYMI: Looking Ahead to Fall

School calendar approved • Planning for five days a week in-person

Looking ahead, the district is planning for a return to in-person learning in 2021–22. While the future public health situation and state rules for schools are uncertain, we intend to have students back at school on-site five days a week.

School likely will continue to look a little different, not a full return to the "normal" of the past. The district will continue to follow health and safety requirements established by the Oregon Health Authority and Department of Education, which may include protocols such as face masks and physical distancing of less than 6 feet.

The district will continue to offer online options for families who prefer all online learning. However, resources will need to be focused in our on-site school programs and there will not be an online program tied to individual schools like the Same School Online option that was offered during this exceptional year.

For families planning dates in advance, the 2021–22 school calendar is here. We look forward to welcoming our students back in the fall!

2021–22 Key Dates for Students:

• Transition Day for Selected Grades: Thursday, Sept. 9
• First Day of Classes (All Grades): Friday, Sept. 10 (why Friday?)
• Winter Break: Dec. 20–31 + Monday, Jan. 3 (potential makeup day)
• Spring Break: March 21–25

Choose Your State Testing Option

Testing outside of live class times • Parents asked to respond by today to participate or opt out for students in grade 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11

Response Form: Participate or Opt OutEspañol: Participar o Declinar

State testing is different during the pandemic. Oregon has gotten federal approval to greatly reduce the amount of testing for students in grades 3–8 and 11 this school year. To avoid taking up the limited time teachers have with students this spring, 4J schools will conduct state testing on a Wednesday in May, not during regular live (synchronous) teaching and learning time.

Families have three options:
• Complete state tests as scheduled
• Opt in to complete additional tests for other subjects
• Opt out and not complete state tests this year

Families with students in grades 3–8 and 11 are asked to respond with your state testing choice by today, April 30, so we can plan for transportation and testing supports (if you have already completed the online form, you do not need to respond again). There are no annual statewide summative assessments for grades K, 1, 2, 9, 10 or 12, so no response is needed for students in these grades.

For specific information on state test subject by grade, dates and locations, please see 4j.lane.edu/state-testing-2021.

COVID-19 Vaccines Available for 4J Students

May 12 – 4J Student Vaccine Clinic

Free Meals Shift to Pickup on Wednesdays

Youth meal boxes offered weekly at seven pickup sites

Starting next week, meal boxes for 4J students and youth will be available for pickup each Wednesday at seven sites. Home delivery will no longer be provided.

Each youth meal box contains four healthy and tasty "heat and eat" breakfasts and lunches, plus five dinner meals. Vegetarian, no-gluten, soy milk, and other dietary restrictions or allergen options are available. Families picking up meal boxes must wear face masks and follow physical distancing rules at all times.

Where:
All 4J middle schools except ATA. Choose the location most convenient for you:

  • Kelly Middle School, 850 Howard Ave.
  • Kennedy Middle School, 2200 Bailey Hill Rd.
  • Madison Middle School, 875 Wilkes Dr.

Good news! Free school meals for all will be available through the summer and the 2021–22 school year. Stay tuned for updates on pickup times and locations.

COVID-19 Risk Level Rising in Lane County

Sharp rise in cases won't close schools, but will impact sports spectators and in-person events, as well as community health

The number of COVID-19 cases in our area has risen sharply in recent weeks. Lane County is moving back to the Extreme Risk level, effective today, Friday, April 30.

Restaurants, stores, churches, and gyms will have a higher level of safety measures and less in-person service, to help reduce the spread of COVID in our community.

Schools will remain open. The extreme risk designation does not require schools to return to distance learning. It does mean there will be more limits on sports spectators and other in-person gatherings and events.

We are seeing some COVID cases in our school communities (families are notified when a person diagnosed with COVID has been at school on-site) but have not been seeing the virus spread at school so far. The strong health and safety protocols 4J has established for school and sports activities are helping to limit the chance of transmission between people at school. Young people's activities outside of school, where health and safety guidelines such as wearing masks and avoiding indoor gatherings may not be followed, are showing to be a higher risk for spread. Many cases also are transmitted between household members.

4J schools are staying vigilant on the stringent health and safety measures at school. It’s critical for all of our community to keep up basic public health practices to help slow the spread—get vaccinated, wear face coverings, maintain physical distance, stay home when sick or exposed or waiting for test results, and practice other good health hygiene habits. This will take all of us working together. Thank you for supporting the health of your family, schools and community.

Curbside Pausing Parking Reminders/ Paradas en la acera Recordatorios de estacionamiento


In the mornings, students may be dropped off along the curb. At the end of the day, drivers can pause park along the curb to pick up their students when they come out at dismissal. Please note the following rules for pause parking:


• Drivers must remain in their cars at all times.
• Drivers should pull forward as space becomes available.
• Drivers should NOT stop in marked crosswalk areas.
• When getting in or out of a car, students must use the door on the sidewalk side. Students should never get in or out of a car on the driver’s side. It’s unsafe for the student and it slows traffic.


Drivers must remember to ALWAYS yield at the painted crosswalks and sidewalks.



Por las mañanas, los estudiantes pueden ser dejados a lo largo de la acera. Al final del día, los conductores pueden detenerse a lo largo de la acera para recoger a sus estudiantes cuando salen en el despido. Tenga en cuenta las siguientes reglas para pausar el estacionamiento:


• Los conductores deben permanecer en sus coches en todo momento.
• Los conductores deben avanzar a medida que se disponga de espacio.
• Los conductores NO deben detenerse en zonas marcadas de paso de peatones.


Al entrar o salir de un coche, los estudiantes deben usar la puerta en el lado de la acera. Los estudiantes nunca deben entrar o salir de un coche del lado del conductor. Es inseguro para el estudiante y ralentiza el tráfico.


Los conductores deben recordar SIEMPRE ceder en los cruces peatonales y aceras pintadas.

Parking Lot Reminders/Recordatorios de Estacionamiento


The parking lot is for families who want to walk their child into the building during arrival or who wish to meet their child at the end of the day at dismissal. Please note the following rules for the parking lot:


• ONLY cross using the crosswalk. Students and families should never cut across the driveway.
• Before using the crosswalk, students and adults must stop and look for cars.




El estacionamiento es para las familias que quieren caminar a su hijo en el edificio durante la llegada o que desean conocer a su hijo al final del día en el despido. Tenga en cuenta las siguientes reglas para el estacionamiento:


• SÓLO cruzar usando el paso de peatones. Los estudiantes y las familias nunca deben cruzar la entrada.
• Antes de usar el paso de peatones, estudiantes y adultos deben detenerse y buscar autos.

Holt Family Hybrid-SSO Handbook REMINDERS



To help families stay informed about schedules, protocols, and other new procedures for learning this spring, we've created the Holt Family Hybrid-SSO Handbook (linked at the bottom of the Holt website). This webpage will be updated as policies, rules, and procedures change. Four key reminders:


Hybrid School Hours – School hours for hybrid are 7:55-12:55. Doors open and supervision begins at 7:40. Students arriving before 7:40 are NOT supervised.


Nut Free Home Lunches – Breakfast and Lunches will be provided for free for all students. Families are welcome to send home lunches if you chooses, but those lunches need to be “Nut Free” (both peanuts and tree nuts) since we are eating in classrooms and cannot have our usual Nut Free Tables in the cafeteria.


Arrival Procedures – Each wing has their own entrance/exit with spots along the sidewalk for where student should stand. See the map below for your child’s entrance. If a student arrives before the doors open at 7:40, they will wait in their car or stand on a sidewalk spot by their assigned entrance.


Dismissal Procedures – At the end of the day, students will exit the building with their teacher, using their designated entrance/exit doors. Bus riders will walk directly to their bus. Students biking or walking will be dismissed. Students waiting to be picked up will wait with their teacher in the designated areas below.


Older siblings are allowed to walk to their younger siblings’ pick-up spot at dismissal time.


Drivers should follow the one way direction traffic flow indicated in the map below. Parking at North Park Community Church across the street is encouraged.

Familia de Holt - Hybrid - SSO Avisos de manual


Para ayudar a las familias a mantenerse informadas sobre horarios, protocolos y otros nuevos procedimientos para aprender esta primavera, hemos creado el Familia de Holt - SSO manual (enlazado en la parte inferior del sitio web de Holt). Esta página web se actualizará a medida que cambien las políticas, las reglas y los procedimientos.

Cuatro recordatorios clave:


Horario Escolar Híbrido - Las horas escolares para híbridos son 7:55-12:55. Las puertas se abren y la supervisión comienza a las 7:40. Los estudiantes que llegan antes de las 7:40 no son supervisados.


Almuerzos de casa - Sin nueces. Desayuno y almuerzos serán proporcionados de forma gratuita para todos los estudiantes. Las familias son bienvenidas a enviar almuerzos a casa si así lo desean, pero esos almuerzos tienen que ser "Nut Free" (tanto cacahuetes como frutos secos) ya que estamos comiendo en las aulas y no podemos tener nuestras habituales mesas sin nueces en la cafetería.


Procedimientos de Llegada - Cada ala tiene su propia entrada/salida con puntos a lo largo de la acera para donde el estudiante debe pararse. Vea el mapa de abajo para la entrada de su hijo. Si un estudiante llega antes de que las puertas se abran a las 7:40, esperará en su auto o se parará en una acera cerca de la entrada asignada.


Procedimientos de despido - Al final del día, los estudiantes saldrán del edificio con su maestro, usando sus puertas de entrada/salida designadas.Los pasajeros del autobús caminarán directamente a su autobús. Los estudiantes en bicicleta o caminando serán despedidos. Los estudiantes a la espera de ser recogidos esperarán con su maestro en las áreas designadas a continuación.


Los hermanos mayores pueden caminar hasta el lugar de recogida de sus hermanos menores a la hora de salida.


Los conductores deben seguir el flujo de tráfico en una dirección indicada en el mapa siguiente. Se recomienda estacionarse en North Park Community Church al otro lado de la calle.

Holt Family Hybrid -SSO Handbook



To help families stay informed about schedules, protocols, and other new procedures for learning this spring, we've created the Holt Family Hybrid-SSO Handbook (linked at the bottom of the Holt website). This webpage will be updated as policies, rules, and procedures change. See the 4J Website for additional updates.

Four important handbook highlights:


Hybrid School Hours – School hours for hybrid are 7:55-12:55. Doors open and supervision begins at 7:40. Students arriving before 7:40 are NOT supervised.

Cohort A students attend in-person Mondays and Tuesday. Cohort B students attend in-person Thursdays and Fridays. SSO students also follow the Cohort 2-days, on, 2-days off model, but via Zoom instead of on-site.


For off-site days, students will Zoom with their class 7:55-8:25 for Morning Meeting and students will also have live teacher time for PE and Music. SSO students may Zoom at different times (check with your teacher)


Arrival Procedures – Each wing has their own entrance/exit with spots along the sidewalk for where student should stand. See the map below for your child’s entrance. If a student arrives before the doors open at 7:40, they will wait in their car or stand on a sidewalk spot by their assigned entrance.


Dismissal Procedures – At the end of the day, students will exit the building with their teacher, using their designated entrance/exit doors. Bus riders will walk directly to their bus. Students biking or walking will be dismissed. Students waiting to be picked up will wait with their teacher in the designated areas below.

Drivers should follow the one way direction traffic flow indicated in the map below.


Update Your Child’s Health Information – Students will be sent home if they are exhibiting COVID-like symptoms, such as shortness of breath, so make sure your child’s health records are up to date if they have asthma or seasonal allergies so they are not mistakenly sent home. Linked here is the Asthma Assessment Form and the General Medical Profile Form, which you can email front office staff.

Familia Holt guia de hibrido - SSO


Para ayudar a las familias a mantenerse informadas sobre los horarios, protocolos y otros procedimientos nuevos para aprender esta primavera, hemos creado la guía de Holt Family Hybrido-SSO (enlazado en la parte inferior del sitio web de Holt). Esta página web se actualizará a medida que cambien las políticas, normas y procedimientos


Cuatro importantes aspectos destacados del manual:


Horario escolar híbrido - Horario escolar para híbridos son 7:55-12:55. Puertas abiertas y la supervisión comienza a las 7:40. Los estudiantes que llegan antes de las 7:40 no son supervisados.


Cohorte A estudiantes asisten en persona los lunes y martes. Cohorte B estudiantes asisten en persona los jueves y viernes. Los estudiantes de SSO también siguen la cohorte de 2 días, en, 2 días de descanso modelo, pero a través de Zoom en lugar de en el sitio.


Para los días fuera del sitio, los estudiantes se Zoom con su clase 7:55-8:25 para la reunión de la mañana y los estudiantes también tendrán tiempo de profesor en vivo para PE y música. Los estudiantes de SSO pueden hacer zoom en diferentes momentos (consulte con su maestro).


Procedimientos de Legada – Cada ala tiene su propia entrada/salida con puntos a lo largo de la acera para donde el estudiante debe parase. Vea el mapa de abajo para la entrada de su hijo. Si un estudiante llega antes de que las puertas se abran a las 7:40, esperará en su coche o se parará en una acera por su entrada asignada.


Procedimientos de despido - Al final del día, los estudiantes saldrán del edificio con su maestro, usando sus puertas de entrada/salida designadas. Los pasajeros del autobús caminarán directamente a su autobús. Los estudiantes en bicicleta o caminando serán despedidos. Los estudiantes a la espera de ser recogidos esperarán con su maestro en las áreas designadas a continuación.


Los conductores deben seguir el flujo de tráfico en una dirección indicada en el mapa siguiente.


Actualice la información de salud de su hijo - Los estudiantes serán enviados a casa si están exhibiendo síntomas similares a los de COVID, como dificultad para respirar, así que asegúrese de que los registros de salud de su hijo estén actualizados si tienen asma o alergias estacionales para que no sean enviados a casa por error.

Great articles for hesitant kids on wearing a mask

How Parents Can Help Kids Wear A Mask?

Masks or cloth face coverings on adults and kids over 2 years old can help slow the spread of the virus. Here are some ways to help kids wear masks when you go out:


  • Help kids get used to masks. As much as you can, give kids time to practice wearing their masks before they might need to wear one outside of your home. Teach them how to put them on and take them off.
  • Encourage kids to decorate their mask. This might help them feel a sense of ownership and control over the situation. A personal touch can help make it more of a normal part of their routine, and make it more likely they'll want to wear their mask. Depending on the type of mask, kids can draw on it with markers or put stickers on it.
  • Make them together. If you make masks or cloth face coverings at home, let older kids help you. There are no-sew masks that are easy to make, often with materials you probably already have (T-shirts, bandannas, etc.). If you sew masks, maybe kids can select the fabric or patterns for the masks they'll wear.
  • Help make it fun. With younger kids, introduce a sense of play. Kids can pretend to be a doctor or nurse while wearing their masks. They might want to use a doctor kit and "take care" of a stuffed animal or doll.
  • Have a few masks handy while kids play. This lets them use their imagination about how to use them during playtime. It also helps make masks a more normal part of their everyday world. You can ask your child to put a mask on a stuffed animal, and then ask follow-up questions about why the stuffed animal is wearing the mask. Depending on your child's response, you can clear up any confusion and offer reassurance.

OBOB- Oregon Battle of Book

Oregon Battle Of Book (OBOB) Updates


All eleven of our OBOB teams battled with lots of heart and dedication this year. We are so proud of the Holt OBOB teams. They read many of books, battled one another, and all students who participated in battles will get a celebration later in the school year. We are excited to announce that the team with the most points in the final round is the 4th grade, "Klever Koalas" consisting of: Runa B., Joie R., Kaitlyn G. and Cora C. Great job girls! They will go on to virtually battle other schools around the state for fun. Unfortunately, due to COVID, there is not going to be a Regional or State battle this year. If your child wants to get a jump start on next year's OBOB, the Oregon Association of School Libraries has released the titles for the first eight of the sixteen books for OBOB 2021-2022. We hope to have them in our library soon!

OBOB- Oregon Battle of Books

Actualizaciones de Oregon Battle Of Book (OBOB)


Los once equipos de OBOB lucharon con mucho corazón y dedicación este año. Estamos muy orgullosos de los equipos de Holt OBOB. Leyeron muchos libros, lucharon entre sí y todos los estudiantes que participaron en las batallas tendrán una celebración más adelante en el año escolar. Nos complace anunciar que el equipo con la mayor cantidad de puntos en la ronda final es el de 4º grado, "Klever Koalas", que consta de: Runa B., Joie R., Kaitlyn G. y Cora C. ¡Buen trabajo chicas! Continuarán luchando virtualmente contra otras escuelas en todo el estado por diversión. Desafortunadamente, debido a COVID, no habrá una batalla regional o estatal este año. Si su hijo quiere comenzar con el OBOB del próximo año, la Asociación de Bibliotecas Escolares de Oregon ha publicado los títulos de los primeros ocho de los dieciséis libros para OBOB 2021-2022. ¡Esperamos tenerlos en nuestra biblioteca pronto!

Update your child's health information

Update Your Child's Health Information


Now that we are moving towards in person learning, we want to remind families to fill out a health form for any conditions that your child(ren) may have that we do not already have on file. We especially want to be aware of respiratory based diagnosis, such as asthma & seasonal allergies, because if we do not have a written record of those condition (signs & symptoms), the student will be sent home for exhibiting symptoms of COVID


Linked here is the Asthma Assessment Form and the General Medical Profile Form, which you can email front office staff.


Actualice la información de salud de su hijo


Ahora que nos estamos moviendo hacia el aprendizaje en persona, queremos recordar a las familias que llenen un formulario de salud para cualquier condición que sus hijos puedan tener que ya no tenemos en el archivo. Queremos estar especialmente al tanto del diagnóstico respiratorio, como el asma y las alergias estacionales, porque si no tenemos un registro escrito de esas afecciones (signos y síntomas), el estudiante será enviado a casa por presentar síntomas de COVID.

Preparing for the return to the school building- Practice and Prepare

Parents/Guardians:

Coming back to school (or for Kinders- starting school) can be a very anxious time. It is important to start thinking about, talking about, and practicing for returning to school. Preparing now can help reduce some of the anxiety that may accompany returning to brick and mortar. Here are some ideas that can be helpful for students and families.

* Practice properly wearing a mask (over the mouth and nose) AND wear it for increasing periods of time.
* Practice washing hands and physically distancing
* Set and maintain evening and morning routines (going to bed earlier, getting up and eating breakfast, getting dressed in clothes)
* Read stories about going back to school
* Pick out a new mask that will be worn just at school (make the mask special)
* Encourage independence- that can help to minimize separation anxiety
* Do a dress rehearsal of a school morning (get up, eat, dress, and drive by the school)
*Driving by the school and letting your child/ren see the school to get familiar with it can help ease anxiety
* Validate any fears they may have (practice taking deep breaths, taking a short break)
* Talk with your child/ren about how school will look different then what it was in the past

We know this will be a huge adjustment for everyone and by working together and practicing now, we can help ease some of the anxiety that may be experienced.

Please reach out to me if you have concerns or questions.

Thank you-

Attendance Matters!

Good attendance is a habit that will help your children do well in school.

· Children can suffer academically if they miss 10% of the school year. (That’s 14 days for districts on a four-day schedule and 18 days for districts on a five-day schedule.) That can happen before you know it—even by missing just one day every two weeks.

· It doesn’t matter if these absences are excused or unexcused. They all represent lost time in the classroom and a lost opportunity to learn.

· Preschool is a great time to start building a habit of good attendance. In fact, studies show that poor attendance in preschool can predict absenteeism in later grades.

· Attendance matters as much in kindergarten as later years. Studies show many children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. They often have trouble mastering reading by the end of third grade.

· By middle and high school, chronic absence is a strong warning sign that without support, a student is at risk of dropping out.

· Too many absent students can affect the whole classroom, slowing down instruction.

Tips to improve your child’s attendance:


· Avoid extended vacations that require your children to miss school. Try to vacation during school breaks only.

· Try to schedule preventative health care appointments for days off of school, or afternoons.

· For younger children, set a regular bedtime and morning routine. They need 9 to 11 hours of sleep.

· It helps to lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.

· For older children, help set homework and bedtime routines that allow for 8.5 to 9.5 hours of sleep. Make sure that when the lights go out, so do the cell phones, video games and computers. Consider keeping technology in another room at night.

· Get to know the teachers and administrators. With younger children, introduce your child to teachers before school starts and keep in touch with the teachers. For older students, school officials can help you stay on top of academic progress and social contacts to make sure your child is staying on track.

· Set clear guidelines. Show that attendance matters to you and that you won’t allow an absence unless someone is truly sick.

· Don’t ask older students to help with daycare and household errands that will interfere with school.

· You can turn to the school for help. Schools can connect you with community resources and help you troubleshoot.

· Visit 211info.org to discover community resources.

· Use the Attendance Tracker provided on the Every Day Matters website.

Reminders for being successful in school

A few general reminders to help your child be successful:


• No TV, cell phone, or video game distractions during Zoom class.
• Camera on and be visible for the majority of class time.
• On time for class and returning from breaks.
• Complete all Seesaw assignments
• Wednesday work is also recorded as participation and graded.
• If possible, have your child show you their Seesaw journal and notifications.

Thank you all for taking these suggestions into consideration and for continuing to support your child as best you can.

Mindfulness App- Stop, Breathe, Think Kids

Mindfulness App. ~Stop, Breathe, Think Kids

Mindfulness skills are helpful in regulating our emotions and responding to stress. There are numerous additional benefits for our children and for adults, such as improved immune system, regulation of stress, improved sleep, better regulated attention and emotions, and much more.


We've been focused on teaching your children about the brain and mindfulness. To use the app, your child will need a parent to sign-in with an email and enter verification code to indicate consent for the child to use the app.


I like this mindfulness app because children can find their own strategy or activity based on their interest or self-identified need, or even better, the child identifies their current emotional state and the app generates a strategy connected to the emotion. This helps children make a connection between useful and appropriate strategies to use in response to certain emotions.


Watch this short video on how to use the app: Breathe Kids video

Check out this link to learn about the app: Stop, Breathe, Think Kids


While Stop, Breathe, Think Kids is made specific for 5-10 year-olds, MyLife also has mindfulness activities for adults. See this playlist for adult-focused activities: Playlist of Meditation & Mindfulness activities
