My Students

My class consists of creative, inquisitive first-grade boys and girls. I am always looking for ways to keep students actively engaged in meaningful learning.

I am looking to purchase emotional regulation books for my class.

My first-grade students consist of a diverse, multicultural population that consists of English as a second language students and special needs students, including a nonverbal autistic child. The entire school consists of 430 students in grades K-5 with wonderful teachers that are always looking to improve their teaching practices. We have been named a National School of Character.

My Project

In education we have witnessed students not being able to control all the big emotions and feeling they have. I want to be able to have them understand their emotions and learn self-regulation skills.

I am asking for emotional regulation books to help my students be better at taking care of their social/emotional needs.

Children in first grade can often be overcome by big emotions and feelings. I want to be able to teach some of the self-regulation skills through books that they can use to calm their minds and bodies. The books will help teach the children mindfulness techniques, yoga poses, meditations and social appropriateness skills.
