What Does It Mean to Be Present?

If you teach young students, you might enjoy this addition to your library. It speaks to the idea of mindfulness and being present in the moment. It is also a wonderful opportunity to talk about words and their multiple meanings.

Before reading the book, begin by asking students to draw what they think of when they hear the word present. Chances are they won’t use the meaning from the book! After reading the book, ask them to do a second drawing, next to the first, illustrating their new understanding of the word.
