Mindfulness/Well-being Challenges: Days 57-62

Monday 22nd- Tuesday June 30th

From today until the end of the school year which is next Tuesday 30th of June we would like you to try some or all of our mindfulness/ well-being challenges below !! If you would like to try any of the previous challenges scroll down and have a look. Also below are links to some great websites for mindfulness resources and activities.

Kids of all ages can benefit from mindfulness activities. In fact, mindfulness for kids can be a creative way to address common concerns in learning and helping children with attention, self-regulation, self-awareness, coping skills, and concentration. Mindfulness activities can be a way for kids to be more present in the moment, and more aware of themselves in every situation, including in the home, in the classroom, and while performing everyday activities. Here, you’ll find fun mindfulness activities and mindfulness exercises kids will love. Use these as ways to address attention and emotions. The best part is, mindfulness isn’t just for children…the self-awareness activities listed here can be used by older kids, teens, and adults!

 

Challenges 

 

Challenge 1.  Have a look at this great  isolation activity book filled with activities for kids of all ages  and also acting as a record of this time that you can look back on in years to come  Just click on the book below, download and print. Have fun !

Challenge 3. -click here to be brought to the I.N.T.O. site for a list of virtual tours including museums zoos and gardens !! Give one of these a try today

 

 

 Challenge 4.  From the film Inside Out. See if you can guess how the character is feeling in this utube video.  

 

 

 

 

Challenge 5.   Mindfulness Activity- Mindful Breathing

Taking deep breaths is so important in relaxation as it brings awareness to your body. There are many different ways  to take deep breaths and then blow out e.g using a pinwheel, blowing bubbles, blowing out candles, picturing a balloon opening and closing with breath. Even breathe in while you count to 5 and then breathe out. Try this today. Have a great day !! Watch the mindful breathing meditation below

 

 

 

 

Challenge 6.   Mindfulness Activity -Body Scan

Lay on your back. Tense up all muscles from head to toe and hold for 10-15 seconds. Then release and relax, and  see how you  feel. This exercise helps kids to recognize how their body is feeling in a tense vs. calm state.This is a relaxation technique that is used to promote positive mental images. You can find guided imagery scripts online, pertaining to many different subjects from nature to emotions. Start by closing your eyes, while seated or lying down. Slowly read the script and visualize the image in your mind, then  draw a picture of that place and keep it in your desk or at home as a reference to a calm place. Watch the find a still quiet place video below.

 

 

 

 

Challenge 7.   Mindfulness Activity- Take a Walk

Being outside and taking a walk is a great way for you to be present in the moment. Listen to  different sounds heard from birds chirping to leaves rustling. Notice the smell of the fresh cut grass or flowers. Feel the different textures of sand and rocks. Notice the sun, wind and clouds. Bring a blanket and lay on the grass, look up at the trees, look at the clouds. Walk over to a pond and listen for frogs, look for fish and throw rocks in to make a splash.

-Email a photo of yourself on your walk to the school here

 

 

Challenge 8.   Mindfulness Activity- Stretching

Taking deep breaths and stretching can be very calming and teaches you to be aware of how your body is feeling.  Turn the lights down, put on relaxing music and help guide your child through bedtime relaxation stretches for kids.

Use these mindfulness strategies for kids as a coping strategy, to help with attention in the classroom, to impact learning, or to address self-regulation needs. What’s very cool is that each awareness activity could be themed to fit classroom or homeschool lessons, the curriculum, or seasons. Make these mindfulness activities fit the needs of your  kids!

 

Challenge 9.  Mindful Posing

One easy way for children to dip their toes into mindfulness is through body poses. To get your kids excited, tell them that doing fun poses can help them feel strong, brave, and happy.

Have the kids go somewhere quiet and familiar, a place they feel safe. Next, tell them to try one of the following poses:

  1. The Superman: this pose is practiced by standing with the feet just wider than the hips, fists clenched, and arms reached out to the sky, stretching the body as tall as possible.
  2. The Wonder Woman: this pose is struck by standing tall with legs wider than hip-width apart and hands or fists placed on the hips (Karen Young, 2017).

Ask the kids how they feel after a few rounds of trying either of these poses. You may be surprised.

 

Challenge 10.  Spidey-Senses

While on the subject of superheroes, this can be a related “next step” to teach kids how to stay present.

Instruct your kids to turn-on their “Spidey senses,” or the super-focused senses of smell, sight, hearing, taste, and touch that Spiderman uses to keep tabs on the world around him. This will encourage them to pause and focus their attention on the present, opening their awareness to the information their senses bring in (Karen Young, 2017).

This is a classic mindfulness exercise and encourages observation and curiosity—great skills for any human to practice.

 

 

Challenge 11.  The Mindful Jar

This activity can teach children how strong emotions can take hold, and how to find peace when these strong emotions feel overwhelming.

  • First, get a clear jar (like a Mason jar) and fill it almost all the way with water. Next, add a big spoonful of glitter glue or glue and dry glitter to the jar. Put the lid back on the jar and shake it to make the glitter swirl.
  • Finally, use the following script or take inspiration from it to form your own mini-lesson:

“Imagine that the glitter is like your thoughts when you’re stressed, mad or upset. See how they whirl around and make it really hard to see clearly? That’s why it’s so easy to make silly decisions when you’re upset – because you’re not thinking clearly. Don’t worry this is normal and it happens in all of us (yep, grownups too).

[Now put the jar down in front of them.]

Now watch what happens when you’re still for a couple of moments. Keep watching. See how the glitter starts to settle and the water clears? Your mind works the same way. When you’re calm for a little while, your thoughts start to settle and you start to see things much clearer. Deep breaths during this calming process can help us settle when we feel a lot of emotions” (Karen Young, 2017).

This exercise not only helps children learn about how their emotions can cloud their thoughts, but it also facilitates the practice of mindfulness while focusing on the swirling glitter in the jar.

Try having the kids focus on one emotion at a time, such as anger, and discuss how the shaken verses settling glitter is like that emotion.

Daily Challenge Day 52 : Science

Monday June 15th

 

 

 

 

 

 

For todays challenge we would like you to create a lava lamp !! All you need is a container, water, oil, food colouring and an alka seltzer. Watch the video below as Zak makes a lava lamp. Send us in some photos of your creation on the link below. We would love to see them, Have fun!!

 

 

What you need

All you need is a container, water, oil, food colouring and an alka seltzer.

 

Instructions

Fill the bottom of the jar with water to about 1/4 full.

Next add vegetable oil. Fill the bottle leaving about an inch at the top.

Next add a few drops of food colouring. This is a fascinating step watching as the food colouring drops fall through the oil and rest on top of the water before slowly starting to mix with the water.

Now it’s time for the magic! Add a teaspoon of Alka Seltzer (if yours are in tablet form, break the tablets into quarters and add a quarter tablet).

Watch the lava lamp come to life with bubbles!

After a few minutes the reaction will settle down. To start it again, simply add more Alka Seltzer.

If you want to store the container and use it at a later time simply set it somewhere safe.

If you need to put a lid on the container, make sure the reaction has completely stopped as a gas is released and a build up of pressure from the reaction could cause the container to rupture if you place a lid on it.

Daily Challenge Day 51: Brainteaser

Friday June 12th

 

 

 

 

For todays challenge we have the maths prison cell !!  Copy this maze out first. Then read the problem and solve the brainteaser.

Here’s the brainteaser…….

There are seventy eight prisoners in a square cell block of twelve cells. There is one prisoner in one of the cells, two in another cell, three in another, four in another and so on up to twelve prisoners in one of the cells.

The clever prison warden made it easy to check if the prisoners were all there by arranging them so there were twenty five along each wall of the prison block. How did he do it?

P.s There’s more than one solution. Answer will be posted on Monday !!!

Daily Challenge 33 : Science   

Monday May 18th

 

For todays challenge we would like you to try Ms Faheys Lemon Volcano experiment !  This experiment is linked this week to Ms Faheys homework.The experiment is suitable for all ages with adult supervision. It is one of the most beautiful, amazing smelling, sensory rich science experiments. Just the visual play of the food colouring during the reactions is amazing. Plus the whole time you are enveloped in the wondrous smell of fresh lemons. Now this is amazing science!

Before you complete the experiment ask yourself  : What will happen when we mix lemon juice and baking powder????

For older children we would also like you to do some research on a volcano of your choice. Produce a one page project with between one and ten easy to read facts and a picture if possible.

 

Ingredients

You will need:

A lemon or two.

Baking powder or baking soda

Washing up liquid

Spoon and a knife

Food colouring

Lemon juice or vinegar.

 

 

Instructions

Step 1: Cut the top and bottom off the lemons and stand them upright.

Step 2: Squash the insides of the lemons to make little holes in the middle.  Be careful not to squirt lemon juice in your eyes like Miss Fahey did!!!!! Ouch

Step 3: Pour in some food colouring to each lemon.

Step 4: Using a spoon pour some baking powder into each lemon.

Step 5: Add in some drops of lemon juice or vinegar and see what happens!!

 

Conclusion: The combination of these products causes a chemical reaction which is released as bubbles. It is the mixing of an acid and a base that causes this.

 

Here is a gaeilge easy science volcano experiment for you to follow.

 

 

 

Now try this experiment yourself !

Daily Challenge 30: Science

 

Wednesday May 13th

For todays challenge we would like if you could try this Science experiment. It’s the egg drop Inertia challenge !!  It’s a combination of strategy, skill, and just a little luck. The goal is to get an egg to drop into a glass of water. Sound easy enough? Did I mention that the egg is perched high above the water on a cardboard tube and that a cake pan sits between the tube and the water? Still think it’s easy? Sir Isaac Newton does. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked!   Are you brave enough to try it with 1 egg or braver still and try it with 5 eggs! Before you do the experiment ask yourself ” What do I think is going to happen ?”  Watch the utube videos below to see the experiment. This experiment is linked to Mrs. Fortunes homework this week. We would love to see photos or videos of your challenge !     Email photos or videos of your egg drop challenge to the school here

 

 

 

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK

Credit for this one has to go to Sir Isaac Newton and his First Law of Motion. Newton said that objects in motion want to keep moving and objects that are stationary want to stay still—unless an outside force acts on them. So, since the egg is not moving while it sits on top of the tube, that’s what it wants to do—not move. You applied enough force to the cake pan to cause it to zip out from under the cardboard tube (there’s not much friction between the surface of the pan and the water container). The edge of the cake pan hooked the bottom of the tube, which then sailed off with the pan. Basically, you knocked the support out from under the egg. For a brief nanosecond or so, the egg didn’t move because it was already stationary (not moving). But then, as usual, the force of gravity took over and pulled the egg straight down toward the center of the Earth.

Also, according to Mr. Newton’s First Law, once the egg began moving, it didn’t want to stop. The container of water interrupted the egg’s fall, providing a safe place for the egg to stop moving so you could recover it unbroken. The force of gravity on the egg caused the water to splash out.

Email your photos to the school here

 

 

Useful Information

Bee hotels are a magnet for solitary bees and providing a place for leafcutters and mason bees to raise their young.

Bee hotels are a great way to boost the population of local pollinators. They also provide a great way of observing the activities of bees!

Why Protect Bees ?

Bees are probably the most important pollinators of crops and other plants. We rely on bees to pollinate apples, plums, carrots, coffee, cotton and much more. Worryingly, many bee species are in decline, largely because of the loss of feeding and nesting habitats.

What are bee hotels?
Not all bees live in hives. Many bee species nest in tiny spaces ranging from hollow plant stems to holes in deadwood or bare ground.

Bee hotels consist of a number of hollow tubes. They mimic the conditions suitable for bees that nest above ground in stems and holes.

What you need

  • 2 litre plastic bottle or you can use a plant pot or a tin
  • you can fill your bee hotel with rolled card or bamboo stems bound with elastic bands or an adult can drill holes for you in a wooden block
  • Add some leaves and sticks
  • Wait for the bees !

 

 

Here are some website links and utube videos below on bee hotels. Have fun !

Daily Challenge 21: Nature

Wednesday 29th April 2020     

For your challenge today we would like you to find out about sea eagles and their history in Glengarriff County Cork. Please use the following websites to find out more – Click here   -and click here

This challenge could be useful to children in Ms. Faheys class doing a project on Irish birds this week !!

Please share your facts and drawings on the school website. Email your facts about sea eagles and drawings to the school here

 

This live-streaming webcam was set up by the National Parks and Wildlife Service to monitor a pair of white-tailed sea eagles breeding in County Cork. White-tailed sea eagles became extinct in Ireland over 100 years ago but were brought back as part of a reintroduction programme: from 2007 to 2011 one hundred eagle chicks were brought from Norway and released in Killarney National Park. They have since dispersed around Ireland and there are now up to a dozen pairs breeding in counties Cork, Kerry, Clare, Tipperary and Galway.This new pairing of sea eagles on the webcam below  has yet to fledge a chick so we will watch with bated breath to see if they can succeed in 2020!

This is the live webcam showing these amazing sea eagles on Garnish Island !!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR NATIVE AMERICANS PROJECT- MRS. FORTUNES 2nd & 3rd CLASSES

People lived in the United States long before the arrival of Christopher Columbus and the Europeans. These people and cultures are called Native Americans. Native Americans were often grouped into tribes or nations. These groupings were generally based on peoples that shared the same culture, language, religion, customs, and politics. There are over 1000 Native American Tribes in the United States.

Complete a project on the Native Americans. The topics you must include are; Clothing, Homes, Art, Life as a child, Religion and two others of your choice. Research the topics and write them in YOUR OWN WORDS. Each topic must have three facts and include some pictures that you draw yourself. You must be able to present this to the class when you get back to school. Enjoy!

Here is a website that might help: www.ducksters.com (https://www.ducksters.com/history/native_americans.php). There is a quiz at the end of each topic to test yourself. Remember be internet safe and search with your parents’ permission and supervision.
