Pikkuli pedagogy: a scientifically effective social and emotional learning tool

Pikkuli is a captivating baby bird who lives in Sunnyvale Woods with his mother, father, and older siblings. Encouraged by his family and friends, Pikkuli dares to explore the world around his nest, even though he is not a natural pilot. However, the Pikkuli is good at many other things, and the whole Sunnyvale Wood’s animals like him as the personality he is.

Inquisitive and sometimes impatient, Pikkuli mirrors the world of a child, where daily new things to learn and many emotions come up: Would I dare to fly? When should you apologize? How does satisfaction, envy, or anger feel?

During this week, we have watched one episode of Pikkuli every morning
From the arena. I've never seen EVERYONE sit so focused as when watching these. We have also discussed each episode after watching it. The Pikkuli soft toy has also been involved in the morning circle, especially to support the new children!
