Bootcamp Bonus: Starting Class


Most OWL classes start with a mix of  greetings, at level warm up questions, clapping, cheering and of course vocabulary review.  However, have you considered  beginning class with some reflection? breathing? mindfulness training?  A fellow bootcamp participant begins his classes everyday with this mantra:



For all of you non Spanish OWLers here is your translation:

You are my other self .

If I harm you, 

I harm myself.

If I love and respect you,

I love and respect myself.

WOW! Talk about a community builder! Could you or would you use this?  How else do you effectively begin class?
