Teaching third grade with the most amazing kiddos is an adventure every day! My students come from many different backgrounds, with 60% of our students coming from a bilingual home where Spanish is spoken as their first language. My particular elementary school has a high poverty rate and is considered one of the most diverse buildings in our district.
Our class has been very busy exploring our Social Emotional Learning this year!
This year's particular class has all the feelings! It's been a lot of fun focusing on our feelings, talking about them, and learning skills to help manage our emotions!
This year we have been focusing on our Social Emotional Learning. There are so many different emotions that my students exhibit through out the day. Sometimes, these emotions can be hard for them to articulate. They also don't always think that there are other kids who feel the same way they are or going through the same kinds of things.
Picture books are a great way for kids to make connections to their feelings!
When they read these picture books they can make connections to the characters and the characters can serve as a model for them on examples of how to manage their emotions and feelings. The list of picture books is long but, it includes books that target anxiety and worrying, friendship, forgiveness, honesty, anger and crankiness, and acceptance.
