The 5 Breath Space Maker

  1. Put away your materials and say to yourself aloud or in your head, “I am done.” Or “This is complete.”

  2. Take 5 slow, smooth, deep belly breaths.

  3. Notice what feels different. 

  4. Notice something you feel grateful for right now.

  5. Now prepare yourself for the next activity. 

Good Times 

  • Transition from one activities to the next

  • Moving from one space to another

  • Arriving in a new space


  • To help children organize their space and thoughts minds.

  • To recognize a shift from one topic to the next.

TIP! Try doing this activity for the same transition every day for two weeks. After that, challenge students to consider what other times this breathing activity would best serve them.
