What You Are Saying About This Course!

What Will You Learn?

You can design a lesson plan from each of the eight modules, and download the accompanying children’s resources children to build skills in reflection, managing anxiety, expressing anger in a healthy way, creative expression and much more.

These tools will carry children through their lives, as they learn to live in the moment, be grateful for the things they have, set goals for themselves, see problems as challenges, and approach life with confidence and capability.

Cultivating a strong and healthy mindset in your classroom can help children navigate the things that life throws at them. The good news is that this can be learned and it’s never too early to start!

Who Will Benefit from This Course?

Healthy habits start young, and building an awareness in the classroom of the need to take care of our mental health from an early age can help children to become happy adults and thrive throughout their lives. This course is suitable to be taught to children aged 6-12 years old within a classroom setting.

Useful and practical child friendly resources

Practical and easy to use resources and materials for both children and facilitators. The process of reflection throughout the course equips children with self-awareness and resilience to recognise and manage their emotions.

Understanding Cliques Resource

I have one child, in 3rd class, who would definitely benefit from understanding cliques...in fact, she would benefit from the whole friendship lesson. Thinking in advance will take some time to learn. I love the alternative solutions because it certainly cultivates independence and allows the child to be part of the solution through their choice.

Emotional Inteligence Module

I think it is vital that we as teachers recognise the triggers for a child but that the children develop the skills of recognising them themselves. I think the lesson about I statements are so important for children to learn at an early age. Also, I think dealing with other people's anger will be very beneficial in the class I am teaching at the minute.

Anger Module

As teachers we tell students to ask for help with their academic work but I think it is very important to encourage them to ask for help with emotional struggles too which was highlighted in this lesson. I feel it's important to teach children that it's Ok and normal/healthy to feel angry sometimes. We tend to focus on trying to suppress anger rather than teaching how to cope with and express it.

Kindness Module

The students liked to learn about how important it was to be kind to others and that being kind and positive to others does not take away from them in any way.
