Mindful Monday Today
Don’t miss today’s Mindful Monday in which Mike Wilson, podcast host of “Making After School Cool” and Outreach Coordinator for the Harris County Department of Education in Houston, Texas and I focus on out-of-school time enrichment activities for children and teens. We discuss how those programs have and continue to change and meet the needs of children. If you are a parent who is interested in getting your child involved in out-of-school enrichment but don’t know where to begin, Mike recommends learning more from your local United Way, YMCA/YWCAs, Boys and Girls Club, and libraries. Mike says they are all analyzing the CDC guidelines and looking for ways to keep children safe, curious, engaged and active through creative means utilizing Zoom but not keeping them on screens for long periods of time. Also, check out the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) resources on out of school time.
As always, we learn from this week’s Native American animal spirit guide, say our Global Pledge of Allegiance, and set a social and emotional goal for the week. Hope you’ll watch and participate with your own family!
