The Voice





Making and taking precious time, each day, to slow your breathing, quiet your mind, and tap into “the voice inside of you” is rapidly becoming an all-important survival skill! Affording yourself, your classroom or your family an opportunity to calm, center, self-soothe and reflect, enables ALL to “reset the compass”. Creating a ritual around the practice (ie. candle/votive lighting) highlights the importance and enhances the fun-factor, especially when including and modeling this practice with young children.


ENJOY Shel Silverstein’s "The Voice," and invite ALL to reflect upon a voice that may be quietly speaking inside… Helping children to notice, identify and label their feelings is a foundational social-emotional skill.
