Description

The Welcome to Well-Being programme is a multi-year programme for children from Junior Infants to First Class. It is designed to enhance children’s well-being across all dimensions – social, emotional, spiritual, physical and mental. Enhancing children’s well-being can lead to a wide variety of other successful outcomes including increased academic performance, better relationships and increased resilience – (Waters, 2011; Park & Peterson, 2008 )

The programme is based on Positive Psychology, which is the science of well-being. It is designed to be implemented as part of the SPHE curriculum.

Specific aims of Welcome to Well-Being Book A:

  • To increase children’s understanding of specific emotions including happiness, sadness, anger, pride and bravery
  • To encourage children to accept and express all of their emotions in a positive way
  • To provide children with the opportunity to upregulate the following positive emotions – joy, happiness, gratitude, serenity (calm), pride and humour
  • To provide students with the opportunity to regulate and express their feelings of sadness and anger
  • To promote feeling of self-confidence and self-worth
  • To promote self-efficacy through giving children strategies to deal with their strong emotions
  • To develop pro-social relationships through encouraging acts of kindness and appropriate expression of emotions

The Teacher book comes with a DVD containing PowerPoint presentations for each lesson, supplementary worksheets and classroom posters and much more. The pupil book has two activities per lesson as well as a home, as well as a homework activity. A pull-out parent guide is included in each child’s Pupil Book to support parental involvement.

The theme of the programme is that two little aliens called Mo and Ko have come from the planet Zo to help children to feel happy, strong, kind and brave, loving and well. Each week they introduce children to a new idea and they set a challenge for the children to try it out for the week – at home as well as at school.
