However, with an ever-growing curriculum, planning for yet another aspect within a school day can feel like an overwhelming task. This book provides teachers with quick, easy and simple ideas to support the development of mindfulness as an integrated part of the school day without compromising the everyday demands of the primary curriculum and the classroom. 100 Ideas for Primary Teachers: Mindfulness in the Classroom is filled with simple tried and tested activities that, when used in conjunction with each other in everyday practice, develop positive mental health skills for all children, including those with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorders.
