In this episode of The Balanced Educator Podcast, we’ve invited grade 5 French Immersion teacher Julia Carreiro onto the show. We talk about how Julia integrates social-emotional learning and mindfulness across the curriculum for a holistic approach to teaching.

Julia gives concrete examples of cross curricular projects she’s developed that integrate:

  • English creative writing
  • French grammar
  • coding

with Mindfulness and social-emotional learning.

Plus, she talks about the benefits she’s observed from teaching mindfulness and social-emotional learning on student wellbeing, mental health and learning. She discusses creating a positive classroom and school culture by integrating mindful strategies into her classroom and in morning announcements.

This episode will give you great ideas for how you can create a greater sense of wellbeing across the curriculum with your students and have a positive impact on your whole school culture. You’ll also get ideas for how you can use the Educalme Classroom online mindfulness program to support your teaching.
