These materials will help our students to become more tolerant, peaceful, mindful, and productive citizens of our community. They will learn to work out conflicts peacefully with and will learn how to compromise. They will learn about controlling their anger using the Mad Dragon card game. I will use the Character Education units to provide classroom guidance to the younger grades, to introduce them to character traits and to help them build their social skills. In conjunction with the units, I will use the Flower Feelings book to help them identify their feelings on a daily basis and begin to learn to use their words to communicate their feelings to the world. Once we learn about these character traits, we will use the Puppet Theater to act out feelings in puppet form as a form of play therapy. Also, with these younger students, I will introduce Feelings and Faces, a craft which helps them to explore their own emotions, a topic that may be new to them! In the older grades, I will use Playing CBT to introduce awareness to the students, so they can begin to understand their thoughts on a deeper level, which will enhance self-control. I have lots of students who are needing to learn coping skills on an individual or small group basis, which is where I will use Coping Cat. Coping Cat is a great resource for students to work through coping skills and learn about their grief in a small, individualized settings.
