Robot Build: a mindful children’s story

Robot Build: a mindful children’s story

Today’s the day Billy and Emily work together on their robot build. Listen to hear how they cooperate, and how their robot turns out.

Robot Build Excerpt:

Emily sighed. She knew her big brother had already read the manual twice. Emily also knew the look on Billy’s face. He needed to read it one more time. So even though Emily was eager to get started, she decided she would let her brother finish reading the instructions before suggesting that they begin the build. Instead she decided to try something else. “While you’re reading, I’ll organize the parts.” Emily suggested.

“Good idea!” Billy said as he turned to the last page of instructions.

Emily set a mat on the table and gently tipped the box to slide everything out on the table. Once she could see everything in the kit, she began to group the parts. On the mat Emily played a matching game with all the little pieces. Screws in one pile, tubes for the frame in another all sorted by size. She placed the larger parts for the robot’s body in the center of the mat.

Billy smiled and set the instruction booklet on the table. “Ok! Are you ready?” he asked his sister.

The Air Show: a soothing kid’s story when you need a break

Holly, Hawk, and Herb the airplanes are excited as they get ready for the air show. Each plane will share their specialty.

The Air Show Excerpt:

Holly, Hawk and Herb felt a sense of adventure as they thought about what the day held in store for them.  Today, the three little airplanes were flying in an air show.   It was something completely new for all of them.  Holly felt excited to bring some delight to the people watching, Herb felt happy to be with his friends, and that his flight would be low to the ground.  No high loops for him.  Hawk felt thrilled that he was about to show everyone what he could do.  The three little airplanes waited eagerly for their turn in the show.  “Let’s take some deep dragon breaths so we are calm and ready.”  Holly suggested.

“That’s a great idea.”  Herb said.  “I know I could use a little extra focus.”

“That’s right we want to be safe, and have fun.” Hawk added.

The three little planes took deep dragon breaths, in and out (deep breath), and pictured their routine in their minds.  They took another deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), and wished the people watching a delightful day.  With one more deep dragon breath, in and out (deep breath), the planes felt focused and ready for their big moment.

They heard the announcer call out “Now, put your hands together for Holly, Hawk, and Herb as they get ready for their first flight in this air show!”  It was time!

Today’s Meditation: Today, enjoy the feeling of your body relaxing into the warm sand on a sunny beach.

Imagination Soup: a calming kids’ story

Imagination Soup: a calming kids’ story

Brianna, Helen, and Rogelio excitedly brainstorm their ideas for a play. With all the creativity, it’s like an imagination soup!

Hello everyone!  We hope you enjoyed our new story “Dragon Fire” on Monday. Now, welcome to Favorite Friday! Sometimes we like to listen to our favorites again. Please enjoy “Imagination Soup,” and we’ll be back with a new story on Monday!

Final 3 Dragon Breaths: 10:45

Narrator: Female

Doctor Mia Excerpt:

Rogelio, Helen, and Brianna played tag for a while.  Each of them had a chance to be “it.”  Then they decided to have a drink of water and rest for a little bit.  As they rested, they chatted.  Helen and Brianna learned about Rogelio, and Rogelio learned about Helen and Brianna.  One of the things they learned about each other is that they all enjoyed being part of a play.  So they decided to put on a play.  First they needed to figure out what their play would be about.  Helen loved being outside so she thought the story should be about the forest, and the forest animals.  Brianna loved things that sparkled and shined, so she though the play should be about finding a precious jewel.  Rogelio liked imagining new and fantastic worlds so he wanted a play about a dragon.  The trio talked, each one explaining why their idea was the best.

Today’s Meditation: Feel your muscles relax as you check in with your body from head to toe.
