Clare runs engaging and interactive storytelling workshops using her stories from The Little Paws Hotel series and Bracken Wood Collection. She ensures all her sessions complement curriculum learning at the time of the booking and include:
Reading a selection of stories, depending on the age and needs of the children.
Exploration of the emotional, physiological and social aspects of the stories. Discussions are encouraged throughout the session, both during and after the story, using The Daesy Dialogue - a framework of words beginning with 'a' and 'e' to get conversations started, engaging children in a dialogue for emotional wellbeing.
Opportunities to learn about empathy.
Activities to promote expression and reflection, consolidate learning, and experiment with new emotional vocabulary.
Free PDF downloadable resource packs with book-related activities, fun crafts and games which ensure pupils can continue having conversations about emotional wellbeing after Clare's visit - see 'Activity Packs' www.head2heartbooks.com.
Photos and stories of Clare's dachshund hotel - The Little Paws Hotel.
