Learn how to easily integrate a values based approach to your teaching. For any teacher who is interested in augmenting their curriculum with life skills. It’s easier than you think ! Values are universal,they unite people in a shared focus and purpose and so create an inclusive environment in your classroom to meet the growing diversity of pupils. Its gives you the teacher another dimension which is inspiring and creative. It gives pupils the opportunity to develop their own very practical inner compass through using simple values to drive their decisions. Easy to integrate and augments  any faith or non-faith ethos, it’s fun, creative and stimulating to add this dimension to your classroom. Be part of a positive change in society to create a more caring and compassionate environment for all. So for example you could have a kindness notice board where pupils can post kind actions of other pupils, bring positive role model stories into your literature, have a values copy for one value based action each week and bring curriculum topics alive e.g. P.E. focus on co-operation, look at values through fair trade in geography, maths- sharing etc.

18CN04 – EMOTIONAL WELLBEING IN THE CLASSROOM

 

Facilitator: Colette Savage, MSc, BSc,PGCE, PGCER

 

Venue: Cavan Crystal Hotel, Dublin Road, Cavan.  Monday Evening 05th March 2018 @ 07.00pm.

 

Colette will cover three great tried and tested simple techniques to integrate into your classroom to enhance the emotional wellbeing of you and your pupils. Creating an emotionally safe and comfortable space is essential to enhance learning as it enables relaxed  concentration .

 

The first tool is reframing a wonderful tool to build mental flexibility to move a negative thought and the resulting emotion to a positive, it’s a bit like the very cloud has a silver lining but  you have to train your brian to look for it !!!. Simple and lots of ways to make it fun

 

The second tool is mindful emotions and labelling . When we label an emotion we put a little space between us and the emotion and this enables us to stand back and look at it and what caused it rather than let it determine how we feel and perhaps getting stuck in it!

 

The this tool is  EFT or tapping as it is known around the world. This is becoming so popular now as the neuroscience research is proving how it works. Taking time to release any stuck negative emotions enables us to feel more peaceful, happy and less stressed. It’s an old technique which has found a modern application and is fun and easy to use. Great with kids and adults.

Venue: Cavan Crystal Hotel, Dublin Road, Cavan.  Monday Evening 12th March 2018 @ 07.00pm.

Expected Outcomes:

 

Participants will have an increased awareness of spelling as a skill and how spelling develops.  They will be able to examine children’s writing and detect strengths and weaknesses and build up a profile of the child’s spelling development.  It will also lead participants to reflect on their own classroom practice and how the quality of errors determines spelling improvement.
