In our MindUP curriculum we learn a lot about our brain. One thing we spend a lot of time on in first grade is the art of calming down. This can mean taking a deep breath, re-evaluating a situation that makes you mad, or how to work through personal frustrations. Today we learned another strategy that's a whole lot of fun. ZENTANGLES! Zentangles are drawings with repeating patterns. They are intricate, careful, and beautiful!
We're working on a big, huge, amazing project coming for you around the holidays :)
We can't tell you too much about it right now, but here's a little sneak peek of what we got started today...including some detailed zentangle work. Zentangles are a great project to work on at home if you need a little quiet time or some space to calm the brain down.
