The perfect place to enjoy JoJo Gnome stories about emotions
Emotions and understanding them are important! As part of a project funded by Creative Scotland I have been to primary schools all over Scotland hosting story workshops based around emotions and wellbeing.
How are you feeling?
This is the main story from the workshop. This story is about JoJo Gnome experiencing different kinds of emotions and how he reacts to them. The video is divided into 3 parts with stopping points to allow you to answer some of the questions asked and check to see if you feel the same way as JoJo Gnome or if you would deal with things in a different way. A great resource to support listening and talking. If you use the film I would love to see any pictures you draw. You can send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teacher’s notes will be available to accompany the story later this year. A second story ‘What makes me happy?’ all about JoJo Gnome finding out how his different senses make him feel happy will be available (late May 2023). This story was written with ASN schools and younger nurseries audiences in mind.
As part of the workshops each school worked with me on the ideas and drawings to complete a story based around emotions. I hope you enjoy them. Each story also allows you to come up with your own ending.
