The "Starving the Anger Gremlin" and "Starving the Anxiety Gremlin" books are full of fun games, activities, and strategies to help children ages 5-9 manage their feelings. These gremlins feed on angry and anxious feelings, and the more angry or anxious you get, the bigger they get! In the classroom, I will use these books to build lessons to teach in small groups of 3-5 students. They will learn why they get angry and anxious, and practical ways to control their feelings to make the gremlins go away. Giving students strategies that allow them to be successful outside of my classroom is the most important part of my job. In order for them to be independent, students need to generalize the lessons that are being taught in my social groups. That is the goal of the "Sticker Strategies: Practical Strategies to Encourage Social Thinking and Organization" book. Using this book, students can create a flipbook of concrete, visual strategies that they can take with them wherever they go, In a small group of 3-5 students, I will teach the strategies in the book, and give students chances to practice. If they decide that it is a strategy that will be useful for them, I can print it on a label and have them stick it in their spiral index card book. This gives students the autonomy to narrow their strategies down to what works best for them and what they will use consistently. There are over 80 strategies in this book that can help my students with getting ready in the morning, sitting in class, working in a peer group, doing homework, and more. When they finish they will have a neatly organized book of strategies that will be theirs to keep!
