A Christmas Carol - A Wellbeing and Mindfulness lesson
A Christmas Carol has been a firm seasonal favourite since it was written by Charles Dickens back in 1843. The Dickensian Christmas is seen by many as the perfect traditional Christmas so this story immediately feels nostalgic and familiar. The strong moral of the tale reminds us to be kind and generous at Yuletide and we are reminded to be grateful for our health by the small boy Tiny Tim.
This popular story has been made into several films over the years and even a musical. Many children will be familiar with the Muppets Christmas Carol, which is a favourite with adults and children alike.
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 7-14 year olds.
