  • by Educational Psychologist Dr Paula Williams and TTS

    A hard-wearing classroom display, sticker pack and teacher's guide to introduce the Tree of Me to your classroom.

    The Tree of Me has been designed to help build children’s sense of identity and belonging and to help them realise the type of person they want to be.

    Each part of the tree has two lesson plans, split into 'A' and 'B'. Lesson 'A' introduces the idea of what each part of the tree represents and encourages children to think about how it applies to the whole class (Tree of Us). In lesson 'B', children consider the same ideas, but as individuals (Tree of Me). Refill pack contains: 1 x 'Tree of Me' Flip Book (30 Sheets, A3) and 30 x Set of 'Tree of Me' Stickers (A3) so the resource can be used again and again. Written by Dr Paula Williams, Educational Psychologist. Difference parts of the tree has a different meaning: The Roots - where you come from: home town; country; your heritage; culture; languages that have been important; any early positive experiences, people or places. The Ground - Where you are NOW; things you choose to do on a weekly basis. The Trunk - Your skills and values. The Branches - Your hopes, dreams, and wishes. These can be long and short term. The Leaves - The names of those who are important to you in a positive way. Your friends, family, pets, heroes, etc. The Flowers - Things you can give to people or things you do, acts of kindness, entertaining, teaching. The Fruits - Things that have been given to you, being nurtured and loved; work-ethic; sense of humour; sportiness. A special thank you to Beverley Smalley, TTS Education Consultant for being the co-author on the lesson plans.

  • Mental Health and Wellbeing Programme by Dr Paula Williams and TTS

    Calming Kittens offers young children in early years and KS1 a toolkit to understand and manage their emotions. Through engaging strategies, children learn to calm themselves and gain better emotional self-control.

    The activity cards assist practitioners, teachers and parents in discussing emotions with children. By using these tools, they can help children understand that feelings are natural and guide them in developing effective coping methods.

    The materials are organised into five color-coded sections, with each kitten symbolising a calming activity: controlled breathing, singing, chanting, repetitive actions, and exercise. These activities are designed to teach children effective coping methods while ensuring they have fun. When children enjoy themselves, their bodies release oxytocin – a hormone that boosts feelings of happiness and well-being.

    Designed for younger children, these smaller cat versions are easier to handle. The activities maintain the same impactful benefits as those in the original Calming Cat set.

  • Paperback Published 21 March 2008 by Brene Brown

    Researcher, thought leader, and New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown offers a liberating study on the importance of our imperfections--both to our relationships and to our own sense of self

    The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what and how we're supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection. Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW, is the leading authority on the power of vulnerability, and has inspired thousands through her top-selling books Daring GreatlyRising Strong, and The Gifts of Imperfection, her wildly popular TEDx talks, and a PBS special. Based on seven years of her ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together. Brown writes, "We need our lives back. It's time to reclaim the gifts of imperfection--the courage to be real, the compassion we need to love ourselves and others, and the connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life. These are the gifts that bring love, laughter, gratitude, empathy and joy into our lives."
  • Paperback Published 28 Feb 2019 by Sharon Martin

    If you feel an intense pressure to be perfect, this evidence-based workbook offers real strategies based in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) to help you develop a more balanced and healthy perspective.

    Do you hold yourself-and perhaps others-to extremely high standards? Do you procrastinate certain tasks because you're afraid you won't carry them out perfectly? If you've answered "yes" to one or both of these questions, chances are you're a perfectionist. And while there's nothing wrong with hard work and high standards, perfectionism can also take over your life if you let it. So, how can you find balance? With this workbook, you'll identify the causes of your perfectionism and the ways it is negatively impacting your life. Rather than measuring your self-worth by productivity and accomplishments, you'll learn to exercise self compassion, and extend that compassion to others. You'll also learn ways to prioritize the things that really matter to you, without focusing on attaining fixed goals. Life isn't perfect, and neither are we. If you're ready to break free from out-of-control perfectionism and start living a richer, fuller life, this workbook will help you get started.

  • Paperback Published 2011 by Kristen Wilson  (Author), Elizabeth Sautter (Author)

    This is our 2nd book in our two-part series to help our students develop a better concept of holistic listening, or Whole Body Listening.

Truesdale (1990), the authors, Sautter and Wilson explore how two siblings, Leah and Luka struggle to focus their brains and bodies during the school day.

Preschool through 2nd - 3rd grade students love the antics of our characters as they teach this important concept in a very fun manner!
