SKU / ISBN:
Winner - Student Resource in the 2023 Educational Australian Publishing Awards
This Value Pack contains the Walkabout Wellbeing Activity Cards and the Teacher Resource Book.
The ancient practices of our First Nations people have powerful applications today in regard to skills and wellbeing. For many students, a connection to nature is an alien concept!
The 'walkabout' can take many forms:
- mental health and wellbeing,
- life skills in an outdoor environment,
- self-esteem improvement by challenges,
- learning about science and Nature.
About the author/illustrator:
Trevor Fourmile is a Yidinji man from Far North Queensland. Trevor's art and use of traditional Yidinji terms allows for further perspectives around language and culture.
The Teacher Guide for the Walkabout Wellbeing Activity Cards has been designed to help students engage in deeper learning opportunities that link with each of the cards. Each card is supported by two full pages of activities which include:
- Spelling and vocabulary development/practice
- Grammar and punctuation work
- Word study and dictionary work
- Oral language opportunities
- Handwriting/fine motor skills practice
- Comprehension and reading fluency
- Critical and visual literacy opportunities
Oral language continues to be a focus with this guide with activities that encourage students to express their ideas and thoughts through speaking, writing, and artwork. This fosters deeper learning, increased understanding, and improved self-awareness.
Various ACARA F-10 References are also addressed, however, the primary purpose is to continually develop literacy skills and oral language opportunities within the context of Indigenous Perspectives.
"We received the Yarn Circles Wellbeing Cards and Teacher Resource from Network Education in time for our Curriculum Coordinators network and the Walkabout Wellbeing Activity Cards and Teacher Resource in time for our Graduate Teacher's network! I used the Yarn Circles cards for a check-in activity in the morning with our Remote Curriculum Coordinators and the Walkabout cards with the Grad. teachers. Both groups loved them! I think the Teacher's Resource that comes with both of the cards are very valuable, our Graduate Teachers were particularly interested in those!"
