Why Use the WorryWoos?
The WorryWoos can be used by teachers, educators, counsellors and professionals in a variety of settings. One of the key features is the flexibility to adapt to the needs of the learning environment ranging from literacy, art, music and counselling. The WorryWoos present social themes, which everyone can relate to in a non-threatening and appealing manner. The emotion-based stories, along with the engaging artwork, provide the framework for the development of critical thinking and social skills. As a result, the WorryWoos enhance academic performance by encouraging students to want to read, assess, and discuss the stories they have been exposed to.
Since each WorryWoo book covers a specific feeling, student’s responses to the material present a framework to discuss personal responses and behaviour in an open, positive manner. The WorryWoo lesson plans cover themes of social-emotional competence such as friendship, self-acceptance, embracing change, inner strength, and emotional self-regulation. The lesson plans reinforce the emotional and academic goals with an emphasis on improving general and emotional behaviour in both schools and at home. The WorryWoo series offers approachable scenarios for kids that blend humour, connection and ways to gently identify. Their themes are rich with content to guide a child into the idea of a feeling—without too much intensity, establishing topics of interest for children to which they can connect without traumatisation.
