A Midsummer Night's Dream - Mindfulness and Relaxation Lesson Plan
A Midsummer Night's Dream is a very popular introduction to Shakespeare for children. Its magical story enchants children and the humour makes it even more accessible.
This lesson has been designed for older children (aged 7-16) 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.
This lesson is suitable for children ages 7 and up.
