My children love coming to school for the safe and secure place that it provides. Many of my students enjoy learning, even as they struggle with it. Like most students, they try their best and work hard to reach their goals.
My students are in a branch of special education called Social Emotional Disturbances.
This means that they have experienced trauma in one of many sorts, and that they have difficulty processing emotions. My job is to help them with their emotions.
Even though my students have emotional difficulties they still need to work hard at academics. When they are ready to learn I love working with them to reach their academic goals.
My students gather in a circle each day to listen to stories and discuss how to manage our feelings and build our community. They respond best to stories that help them understand their emotions in a simple or funny way.
Everyday we read a story together, and the Learning to Get Along book set is great for us to learn about getting along together.
The rest of the books are especially chosen for us to discuss feelings management.
The books " A sick day for Amos McGee", "One", and "We're all Wonders" will all be wonderful additions to our growing library.
