The Feel Brave Teaching Guide is the perfect companion to the Feel Brave series of books, and is designed to help 4- to 7-year-olds explore emotional intelligence, positive psychology and some of the challenging feelings which they might experience in everyday life in an engaging, creative and non-threatening way.
The books help children deal with anxiety, confidence issues, bullying, fears, change, loss and grief. These “little stories about big feelings” will help children develop the resilience they need in order to cope effectively with these important issues as they grow up.
The teaching guide is split into five sections, covering the themes addressed in the seven individual Feel Brave books and provides activities and guidance on how to explore these issues in the classroom or at home.
Activities include guided visualisations, physical exercises, drama games, mindfulness exercises, craft activities and card games. The teaching guide also includes the text from the seven books, meaning they can be read aloud in class or at home.
