Mindfulness and Appreciation Song
#classroomcommunity: Use this mindfulness song to teach kids to appreciate each moment – and to help them deal with anxiety, worry, stress, and even bullies. Since second verse lyrics speak to supportive friendships, Gift makes an awesome addition to any bullying, behavior management or social skills programs you already have in place – including ours!
Gift is one of our most popular songs of all time. It is often chosen by kids themselves to sing at graduation. One story shared with us was of a classroom full of kids who skipped recess just to keep singing this playful song. Lyrics have proven to speak to kids in a very big way. Colorful rhymes that make a lot of sense help kids re-think, relax, and re-focus.
Our appreciation song studio recording makes a PERFECT addition to any classroom playlist.
