    Join Dahlia, Victor and Bluu as they grow in mindfulness in Golden Sparkles.  Written by the ELC’s Ms. Catarina and based on the journey of her own students, the book encourages readers to “Listen to your body. It isn’t hard to do. All it takes is a minute, even if you’re feeling blue”.   In an effort to help her students address social and emotional needs, Ms. Catarina leveraged the tools the IB curriculum offered, such as the IB Learner Profile, and insights from her work with expert teacher and practitioner of mindfulness, Bora Rancic.  Ms. Catarina built mindfulness into the curriculum, allowing time for students to embody mindfulness with independence and consideration for others, learning from and alongside each other. Soon children were volunteering to lead the morning mindful minute session and imagining their own breathing exercises.  By the end of the academic year, grateful parents were preparing to take mindfulness with them as a family when the students progressed to the next year level. This journey inspired Ms. Catarina to write Golden Sparkles, a book that explains to children how they can become more aware of their feelings at the moment in which they breathe, with focused attention and intent.   Congratulations to Ms. Catarina, ELC teacher, children’s book author, and mindfulness practitioner.  You and your students are truly thriving in the world.
