Guided Meditation for Kids Scripts

Mindfulness is a powerful tool that can help us get through the school day, but it’s not always easy to remember to practice it. That’s where guided meditation scripts come in!

A guided meditation script is a set of instructions that guides a person through a meditation practice. It typically includes verbal cues and imagery to help the listener focus their attention, relax their body, and quiet their mind.

If you’re teaching mindfulness in your classroom, this script will be invaluable for guiding students through mindful breathing meditation sessions. The script uses language suitable for kindergarten, 1st- and 2nd-grade students, and it’s easily adaptable for upper elementary. It teaches students practical skills that can serve them throughout all aspects of their lives.

This printable teaching resource was designed by our teacher team for you to read to your elementary school students. It’s a simple guide you can use in the classroom, or print out for students to take home.

But the benefits don’t stop there! As a teacher, you can use it too — wherever and whenever you need a reminder to take a moment and breathe!

What Is Mindful Breathing?

This guided meditation script for kids is focused on mindful breathing. Not familiar? That’s OK! Here’s some information to help inform your classroom meditation.

Mindful breathing is a type of meditation that involves focusing one’s attention on the breath, using it as an anchor to bring awareness to the present moment. This practice can help students to calm their minds, reduce stress and anxiety, and improve overall well-being.

    So, I created an account thinking I was getting a free download, gave my personal information of email, to find out there is a charge. It felt a bit deceiving.
