Pinocchio - A wellbeing and mindfulness lesson plan
Pinocchio has been a favourite character for generations. It was of course made popular by the 1940 Disney film. The story of the little puppet who becomes a real boy has charmed children throughout the years. The original story by Carlo Collodi is somewhat darker than the Disney version but this lesson plan only explores Pinocchio’s very early life and won’t go into the more sinister lessons learned by this naughty little puppet, don’t worry.
I hope you will enjoy learning about this magical puppet and his naughty streak.
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 3-10 year olds.
