How Can I Teach with This Tool?

Moshi Kids: Sleep & Meditation is an enormous collection of audio recordings that includes nature sounds, music, stories, and even guided meditations to help kids calm down, relax, and hopefully even fall sleep when the time is right. Teachers can select stories and meditations based on specific skills that guide social- emotional learning in their lesson plans; such learning may improve emotional control, empathy, problem-solving, transitions, and self-awareness. The ability for teachers to sort stories and music by theme, category, and timeframe, both online and in the app, will be helpful for teachers who just need something quick or who are designing a more detailed lesson plan. 

The website features downloadable lesson plans, articles, and classroom management ideas featuring the Moshi characters. Teachers can send these home to parents in emails, newsletters, or a backpack. At daycares or early childhood settings with kids who take naps, teachers have a variety of audio options to incorporate into their daily routines to promote more restful nap times. Overtures, jazz tunes, and symphonies may offer calming classroom background noise during individual work times. For teachers who educate kids with autism or ADHD, a short five-minute meditation may be a helpful way to help kids cope when they are struggling with their emotions.
