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.

Curriculum information:
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.

 

Customer reviews:

"Yarn Cards is invaluable for students of all ages as the cards give students permission to talk about and discuss very personal feelings, thoughts, emotions and ideas confidently. The Yarn Cards provide students, teachers and caregivers with a stimulus for important communication and are a much needed tool for supporting our young people in today's hectic world."
--Teacher Librarian at The Kooralbyn International School

 

"These are beautifully produced cards that are designed, illustrated and authored by Krystal Randall. They are wonderfully tailored for circle activities and provide very appropriate 'Yarn Time' questions as well activities as a follow up. I appreciate the suggestions of picture books to use in conjunction with the cards. These cards are beneficial for all cultures and a perfect way to expose students to the culture of our  First Nations' People."
