Dr Dolittle - Wellbeing and Mindfulness Lesson Plan
As a child I absolutely loved the stories of Dr Dolittle. I remember going to the library to choose the next volume from the shelf. The enchanting tales of John Dolittle and his ability to talk to animals passed many magical hours of my young life and definitely helped to cement a love of reading. Now, with the new film I hope that this wonderful fantastical character will become a firm favourite with a new generation of children. Maybe they will even read the books.
This lesson plan is age appropriate and includes relaxation techniques such as breathing techniques and simple yoga poses as well as basic mindfulness strategies.
Mindfulness and relaxation have been proven to increase children's concentration, create a calm atmosphere and even increase attainment. It is a wonderful addition to any setting.
All my lesson plans are created for people with no prior knowledge of relaxation and mindfulness techniques and carefully go through every technique step by step. They also include a fun script for you to read through which incorporates all the techniques learned into an enjoyable, relaxing story which is completely age appropriate.
My lessons now all come with a child and teacher assessment sheet which is fully editable and enables you to show evidence for the progress and learning for each child.
These lesson is most suitable for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 (2-11years).
