Lesson Plans in this manual span the SPHE Infant Curriculum. They are grouped by:


Topics, which are based on the Strands/Strand Units of the Social, Personal and Health Education Curriculum, are split in to two lessons:


Every effort has been made to provide as much material as possible slovenska-lekaren.com. Classes may move through material at varying paces and this is to be encouraged as the teacher deems necessary artículo.

Each lesson plan provides ideas for questioning and discussion comprar kamagra.

‘Meditation’ can be understood in this context as the application of concentration in order to gain awareness https://ed-hrvatski.com/genericka-viagra/. The type of meditation practiced is simply a matter of what the practitioner puts their concentration on. The meditations accompanying Bígí go Breá have been written and developed following years of my own observation of children part-taking in meditation magyargenerikus.com/. The two main challenges that arose for children were:



‘Stillness’ and ‘breathing’ are important skills to develop to gain benefit from meditation artículo. Therefore, two meditations were developed for children to acquire these specific skills, with a third meditation to combine both skills southafrica-ed.com. Each meditation is supported by a video. These meditations are called:


  1. Wiggle and Freeze
  2. Breathe magyargenerikus.com/
  3. Light


‘Wiggle and Freeze’ and ‘Breathe’ are practiced alternately each fortnight, until half way through Term 2, when the children can being practicing ‘Light’ each fortnight polska-ed.com artículo. Below, each meditation is outlined in detail.

Wiggle and Freeze

For children to learn what stillness is, they must be aware of what it is not. This meditation is developed like a game in which the children explore the difference between ‘stillness’ and ‘movement’ southafrica-ed.com. Often, children (and adults) can find it challenging to ‘stay still’. This is natural for a number of reasons. Children are typically naturally physically active and energetic and it can be extremely ‘boring’ to stay still polska-ed.com. However, the skill of stillness is important to develop in ourselves so that, when we need to, we can concentrate and focus our attention slovenska-lekaren.com. This can lead to great productivity https://ed-hrvatski.com/genericka-viagra/. This fun game is the first step in developing the skill of stillness.


The rhythm and process of breathing is something we tend to become less skilled at as we grow older magyargenerikus.com/. An average, healthy newborn intrinsically would breathe effectively. They make use of the abdomen and engage in deep abdominal breathing, using the full capacity of the lungs. Deep abdominal breathing encourages full oxygen exchange polska-ed.com polska-ed.com magyargenerikus.com/. It can slow the heartbeat and lower or stabilise blood pressure. (Harvard Health Publishing, Harvard Medical School) As we age, we can develop more shallow, ‘chest’ breathing and often using our mouths to take in oxygen, rather than our nasal cavity. This meditation, ‘Breathe’ is guided by our friend Aqua to develop these skills.


The meditation ‘Light’
As the world can be a busy and chaotic place, there can be many distractions slovenska-lekaren.com polska-ed.com. It is important to take the time to develop concentration and an awareness of ourselves so that we may identify our personal needs and state of mind. Effective meditation, practiced consistently over time can help achieve this. ‘Light’ is a combination of stillness and breathing which focuses the attention on the different parts of the body in a pattern, using the ‘light’ as a focus southafrica-ed.com. The children will develop an awareness of their body and how it might feel. This level of awareness is necessary for the child to be better able to identify how they feel southafrica-ed.com. When the body is still, it can be a gateway for the child to identify how they might be feeling emotionally. This skill, when practiced consistently over time, can help the child to identify how they are feeling as emotions occur slovenska-lekaren.com. This is desirable, rather than having a build up of emotion to a ‘tipping point’, which can happen if the child is incapable of early identification.

Flower Breathing

The breathing exercise video is separate from Meditation 2, ‘Breathe’. While the use of this video is identified in the lesson plans, the video can also be used at any time of the day by the teacher. It focuses on breathing only and and uses the analogy of a flower to help the children grasp the idea in a practical and visually appealing way https://ed-hrvatski.com/genericka-viagra/. The children imagine smelling the flower and then gently blowing the petals comprar kamagra. It is a calming and soothing exercise for the children to wind down and gain focus.

“Every child is an artist”

Pablo Picasso

“All true art must help the soul to realise its inner self https://ed-hrvatski.com/genericka-viagra/.”

Mahatma Gandhi

The Creative Wellbeing Art is dedicated to using Visual Art to support and encourage wellbeing. It was created by Kevin Conneely, an Irish primary school teacher comprar kamagra.

The activities selected can be used alongside the Bígí go Breá programme as assessment opportunities, as Aistear stations, or as standalone art lessons. There are 18 individual lessons with full lesson plans included polska-ed.com.

The desired result is one where the process is enjoyed for its sensory and creative purpose, and the product created by each child is unique and personal.

The creative arts are a wonderful way of encouraging all voices to be heard in the classroom and can be a fantastic way of showcasing individuality, especially when integrated with SPHE and wellbeing southafrica-ed.com.

These activities include both standalone lessons and also long-term projects. The content includes an itemisation of all the materials the teacher will need, including the bare minimum and beyond. There are also pictures of real art accompanying each art lesson which was trialled by a Junior Infant. The activities cover the strands of the Visual Art Curriculum.

Junior Infants often express themselves in Art in a truly individual and free way, which is why it was important to include as part of the Bígí go Breá Programme. Rather than having a colouring workbook to accompany the programme, these lessons are geared towards a more free and individual process.
