This is an announcement from your A.C.T.I.O.N. Nurses!! We have been hard at work integrating and teaching mindfulness among the Gr. 4, 5, and 6 classrooms. This was our second teaching session with these classes and they were really engaged throughout! We brought in jars, each with different scents, and asked the students to smell each scent. We asked the students to describe the scent and what type of memories from their lives were associated with each scent. Mindful smelling can help us to be more aware of the environment around us and it also sharpens our memory (MindUP, 2011).
