Feelings, OOOOOHHHH Feelings

My students need 10 books and 10 journals to learn about feelings. They will focus on their own first, then transfer information learned to other people.

My Students

Do you remember a time when you struggled with a concept in life? Our students have not yet grasped the concept of feelings, emotions they are feeling or what other people are feeling. This set of books will help students begin to grasp the concepts. It's our desire to help our student learn.

Our students are incredible young adults.

They range in age from 12 to 21 in a LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM housed in a public school for grades 7 - 12 in Oregon. We have 45 students, who are just like all other young adults. They wish to make friends, be accepted, attend social events, play sports, play musical instruments, sing, draw, paint using water colors, acrylics, oil based paints, dance, sing, talk on the phone and they attend classes, math, reading, writing, health, PE, drafting, choir, band, and drama classes to mention a few. Our students have skill deficits in many areas: including academics, and social skills to mention a few, but other areas are affected too. Our students wish for those around them to understand them, but often times have trouble with communication. Being able to explain to others how they feel.

My Project

Do you wake up and take for granted that you are in a mood and you know why you are in that mood? Our students do not have that information or ability to understand. They need to be taught the concepts. When you are better able to grasp a concept in social skills such as your emotions, you are better equipped to fit into society. Our students will begin to recognize the body language of other students. To begin to interpret what another person may be feeling. It is the beginning process of saying the right things to people, instead of saying something that is inappropriate in the situation or saying nothing at all. The books and journals will help students gain knowledge of themselves first then begin to transfer the information to other people around the. This will build confidence in themselves.

Think about a time when the light bulb came on for you, when you finally understood a concept that you had struggled with.

The feeling of success, the smile on your face, the shimmer in your eyes. This is what we aim for everyday working with the students in the Life Skills program. Please consider supporting this new learning experience for our wonderful students.
