Help me give my students a better understanding of themselves and others by sharing the Dealing with Feelings Board Book Collection with each other.
My class is comprised of 12 special needs students at a Title I school. About one-third of them are coded Other Heath Impaired due to various seizure disorders. About one-third are coded intellectually disabled. Two of them are coded autistic. Most have multiple codings that include speech. My two youngest are in first grade and the oldest is in fifth grade. I typically will have the same students multiple years. I have students from when they enter the Life Skills program until they enter sixth grade. Each of my students has their own education plan as well as working on the prerequisite skills for their appropriate grade level TEKS.
While some people tend to focus on all the things my students can't do, I prefer to remind the students of all they can do and address what they can't do YET in small steps.
I have two wonderful assistants that help me as I address the many needs of my students, or kids. This is the second year I have taught this type of unit and we have seen phenomenal growth. The students communicate their desire to learn in various ways, but they're consistent about wanting to increase their knowledge.
My students struggle to communicate their feelings and emotions as well as recognizing the feelings and emotions of others. By using the durable board books in the Dealing with Feelings Board Book Collection, I can share them with my whole class or my students can share them with each other. The Stack and Build Emotion Kids will help them identify body language that is common for various feelings and emotions. The All About Me Theme Book Library will help my students identify their own attributes and talents.
These resources will help my students find words to express themselves in a healthy and socially acceptable way.
