From the Classroom to the Real World
Mindfulness isn’t just for adults. Children and teenagers start learning their responses to challenging situations at a young age, and the F.L.O.P. mindfulness framework helps them build resilience through the ups and downs of learning. Our strategies and tools are approachable for all ages and abilities, and welcomed by K-12 teachers as a key asset to help them serve a diverse group of students with different learning styles who progress at their own pace.
SEL, SPD, ADD, and Student Well-being
Flop Balls are soft, safe, and accessible for all ages and abilities, and their applications are endless. Flop Balls are successfully used by guidance counselors and integrated into sensory rooms, calm down corners, and other areas where positive behavior is being reinforced.
Experiential Professional Development
In our virtual and in-person interactive session, teachers gain new strategies for promoting mindfulness, modeling a growth mindset, and building more resilient students. Flop Balls are used extensively, allowing teachers to build their own skills and comfort levels, and each teacher will leave with a Flop Ball that can immediately be used to increase classroom engagement.
Flop Ball kits have everything a teacher needs to energize, engage, or transition a classroom of students. Kits contain 36 Flop Balls, 2 decks of cards, and a USB drive with instructional resources including instructional videos and animations, discussion prompts, and programming ideas. Our F.L.O.P. mindfulness framework, which helps students practice strategies to thrive in the messiness of learning, growth, and change, is a central part of the kits.
