The meditations have been developed in conjunction with Tara Segree, an educator and mindfulness practitioner with 17+ years of experience. Tara's work has positively impacted the lives of many children across the globe. These meditations are intended for children ages 6+.

Mindfulness Practice Before Exams and Tests - 5 Minute Meditation for Kids
Mindfulness Practice Before Exams and Tests - 5 Minute Meditation for Kids: This mindfulness and breathing exercise helps children relax and build confidence before they take a test or exam. Our students are under so many pressures, and taking a test can cause performance anxiety. Many students feel that they ARE their test scores when we know there are endless other factors that make up our child. Assessments can be used as a tool to determine growth in academia, but they are not the final deciding factor on a child's ability to learn. Regardless, giving a child the time to be mindful before focusing on a test can calm them so that they can answer questions thoughtfully. This mindfulness segment can also bring them confidence - something we want our children to carry daily. Mindfulness is an important theme in 'The Paper Girls Show'.
