What is a virus? What happens inside your body when you get sick? Why can’t we see our friends and family right now?During this global pandemic this little book is a tool to help children and parents talk about tricky subjects and understand what our wonderful immune systems are doing to protect us and what we can do to help ourselves and most importantly reduce some of the fear and anxiety. The book contains a short story, colourful illustrations, a breathing exercise to reduce anxiety, a recipe and ideas to get creative plus some of the resources available if you need additional support. A collaboration of artists and designers with words from a nutritional therapist, art therapist, mindfulness teacher.
A creative resource pack featuring 5 classroom ideas, to help pupils explore the themes of art and family in the story. All ideas are fully resourced and feature art activities, reading comprehension and inference and PSHE links. For more on Luna Loves Art, check out our blog.
Cheryl Moskowitz has created this teaching resource to accompany The Corona Collection – A Conversation.
There are ideas for facilitating discussions around key themes and providing a space for children to discuss some of their experiences of lockdown.
There are also ideas for children to write their own poetry, inspired by some of the poems in the collection.
Using her talent for capturing children’s perspectives and using recent interviews with children themselves, during lockdown Cheryl Moskowitz has been writing a brand new collection of poems. The Corona Collection – A Conversation records their thoughts, questions and experiences while they live in a world turned on its head by the coronavirus pandemic.
She asked them these questions: Suppose you woke up tomorrow and it was a corona-free world, restrictions all lifted. Where would you go? What would you do? What new rules, if any, might you put in place for a safer, happier world? Funny, touching and affecting, these poems form a unique record of children’s thoughts and feelings in a period in which our lives were turned upside down.
This collection was published with Pop Up Projects as a special edition for schools taking part in our programmes in 2020.
