Wishing well offers a way for children to support each other and calm themselves. The Wish Well Board provides a visual way to aid children in wishing each other well during your daily Wish Well Ritual.
Wishing well is a way to instantly calm ourselves, and offer love and caring to others. It is a way for children to help others when there is no physically tangible way to offer their help. To wish well 1) put your hands over your heart 2) take a deep breath in 3) pause and picture something precious in your mind 4) breathe out while opening your arms and sending those precious, loving thoughts out to the person you are wishing well.
The Wish Well Board is used for the class-wide Wish Well Ritual. When a child is absent, moving to another school, has arrived late or is in need of support for other reasons, the child’s picture or name is placed in the heart inside your Wish Well Board. During your Wish Well Ritual, we will invite the class to wish the child well.
