Farm Animals - A Mindfulness and Relaxation Lesson Plan
Farm animals are a favourite with children from a very early age. Many children can repeat animal sounds before they can speak words. This lesson plan celebrates not only our love of farm animals but is also to commemorate the famous Yorkshire veterinary surgeon and writer James Herriot, who was born 100 years ago on 3rd October 2016.
Mindfulness and relaxation have been proven to increase children's concentration, create a calmer 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.
This lesson is most suitable for 3+ years.
