Move it or Lose it- Practical ways to Use Movement to Regulate Anger in the Primary School Class.
The "hand model" of the brain will be taught- a practical way for teachers and children alike to understand what happens to them inside when a big feeling surfaces. This will include an outline of the zones of regulation.
Following this the benefits to using a variety of movement with dysregulated children will be discussed. Perceived limitations to the use of movement- such as safety, weather, space will be addressed.
Next a number movement based activities and strategies will be provided. These will be playful, child-centred and accessible for all.
Opportunity for questions and answers will be provided.
Finally, a list of further resources for teachers will be given.
Participants will gain an understanding of the nervous system which will inform their responses to big emotions in the classroom. They will learn strategies to help children release feelings in a safe way. They will obtain key learnings on maintaining boundaries while facilitating safe release of feelings in the classroom. This relates to the social and emotional elements of the curriculum along with the wellbeing standards and goals set out by the dept of education.
