Author: Coombs, Sharlene and Randall, Krystal
Yarn Circles Wellbeing Cards have been designed to provide opportunities for students to talk about their feelings, emotions, thoughts and ideas in a safe, positive and collaborative environment. This process reflects the traditional Yarn Circles time that was such an important part of the culture of our First Nations' people. We see it as an extremely important ancient practice that is now fulfilling a very modern need.
ACARA F-10 General Capabilities supported by these cards: Personal and Social Capability; Literacy (interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating); Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cross Curriculum Priority (diversity of language, ways of life and experiences).
Yarn Circles Wellbeing Cards will provide opportunities for students to express themselves through oral language and therefore increasing the learning experiences. The activities are designed to help you draw on students' prior knowledge, circumstances, imagination, visual, aural, oral and written capacity to bring about increased understanding, acceptance, empathy, self awareness, self-worth and the opportunity for positive change.
