Make a face that shows frustration or happiness. Tell about a time you felt calm or scared. What color would your heart be if it were a color? Those are just a few of the challenges players face in HeartMath's new Wild Ride to the Heart® game, where the first player to reach the heart at the center of the board, wins. But win or lose, the whole family will soon learn the true fun in playing Wild Ride — again and again — is because it makes you feel good in your heart.
Wild Ride is especially designed to teach children about recognizing, expressing and balancing their emotions. The game incorporates HeartMath's nearly two decades of scientific research and field studies into the physiology of emotions and the intelligence of the heart. For those who are lucky, the journey to the finish will be smooth, but chances are they'll have a Wild Ride as they make funny faces, tell stories and have lots of fun. It's good for the heart.
HeartSmarts Grades 3-5 Teacher's Kit -For classroom useNew social and emotional supplemental learning programThere's enormous pressure to do well in school and fit in, and numerous relationship challenges with family, friends and teachers. HeartSmarts teaches students to manage stress, improve learning and strengthen relationships. The program is based on the Institute of HeartMath's innovative research into the physiology of learning, teaching students a core set of tools and strategies that become part of the meaningful rituals and routines in their classrooms, intervention groups or after-school programs. HeartSmarts is organized into five modules. Short lessons within each module use experiential learning for problem-solving and collaborative discussion on topics related to school performance. Through minimal practice and reflection, students develop "habits of the heart" that improve learner readiness, motivation, behavior management and classroom climate. Students identify their emotions, recognize situations that trigger stressful emotions, learn skills to improve communication and are taught a series of tools on how to shift to the heart. Students love this program because it enables them to talk about what is most important to them and offers concrete ways to help them feel and perform better.
Program Components Includes:
Program Content:Exploring Emotions
Getting in Sync for Learning

Becoming Your Best Self

Why Heart-Based Education? HeartMath research has identified a measurable physiological state that underlies optimal learning and performance. In this state, our emotions are calm, and our brain, nervous system and other bodily systems function with increased synchronization and harmony. In simple terms, we're highly in sync — physically, mentally and emotionally. This in turn, facilitates the higher cognitive processes critical for focusing attention, reasoning and creativity — all essential for effective learning, academic achievement and social success.
