The distinction between big M and little M mindfulness is key, and so well put. As I've incorporated mindfulness into my PE teaching I've thought about how to distinguish between activities that are explicitly mindful and activities that can be done mindfully without needing to label them "mindful." I think both are crucial, as the surest way to alienate students is to drown them in formal practice without also teaching them the joy of just being and doing. Calling it big M and little M is really a perfect way of putting it.
- I also thought the Gradual Release of Responsibility was a really neat concept and one I hadn't thought of. But really, what is the point of teaching mindfulness if one cannot pass it on as a tool? Even though your presentation is geared towards K-5, I thought this piece in particular would be salient for middle school students, and fit in well to a mindfulness curriculum for them. I suppose one question I have is are you considering developing this further to feature activities for older students?
As someone who is studying this very topic in grad school I'm really impressed by the breadth and practical applicability of this document!
