Curriculum and Resources

Calma equips teachers with a framework and resources to create calm classrooms.

As a result students learn how to cultivate the important life skills of self-managing their distracted thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Everyone in your school will benefit from the Calma program:

  • Better class management
  • Calmer learning environment
  • More engaged students

Curriculum Overview

Calma is a highly evolved, progressive series of three age-appropriate student mindfulness video lessons designed for classroom delivery. Teachers have access to five high quality video lessons with accompanying guided mindfulness exercises to engage students in a daily meditation practice to cultivate skills such as present moment awareness, self-regulation and more focused attention. Students are prompted to engage in a teacher or student lead discussion about how these skills will help them academically, socially and emotionally.

The staff training program is also available on our website so you can use Calma immediately to directly engage students without complex and lengthy preparations, expensive costs, or formal certification pre-requisites. Staff can watch the training videos at their convince, and new or veteran staff will be able to access the videos throughout the entire school year.
Finally, after sharing the five mindfulness lessons:

  • Present moment awareness
  • Self-regulation
  • Focused attention
  • Gratitude
  • Empathy

You have access to additional guided meditation exercises to use throughout the school year to begin your day calmly, or to help with transitions. You will continue to create calm classrooms the entire school year- all you have to do is click play!

“Calma shouldn’t be used just to solve a problem. It is used so you don’t have a problem. Calma has reduced anxiety among students, staff… ultimately the entire school.”

Maryann Hayslip, St. Aloysius Principal & Recipient of National Principal Award 2020

We make bringing Calma to your school easy

Implementing Calma into your school is a structured process designed to help administrators, teachers, and students leverage techniques and language to create a better learning environment in classrooms and develop a culture of calm.

  1. Online staff training
  2. Video lesson access, all lasting about 15-20 minutes. It’s perfect for a morning meeting setting
  3. After the initial 5 videos delivered, teachers can continue the daily meditation practice with additional guided meditation videos such as Begin Your Day the Calma Way, or instrumental meditation music
  4. Reinforce Calma mindfulness techniques through common language
  5. In year two, introduce additional Calma tools to students such as our book Paws & Breathe, Calma coloring sheets, and Calma corners for meditation
Self-regulation, or managing one’s own thoughts, emotions and behavior, is a skill that children must be taught in order to work through big feelings, and fix problems. Calma cat and friends learn that each day brings about different emotions, but by practicing mindful breathing, they can handle just about anything. Practice every day, and soon you’ll see that being calm and peaceful is a wonderful way to be!
