Instead of teaching a self-contained ECSE room, my classroom next year will consist of both students with IEPs as well as typically developing kiddos without IEPs! I am so excited for this new experience. My students are all aged three to five years. I will have 15-20 students in the morning and 15-20 in the afternoon.
I teach in a high-poverty Title I school.
More than three-quarters of the students in our school are from low-income households. My classroom will be the first school experience for the majority of my students and I want it to set the tone for their future education. Therefore, I do all that I can to make their experience one that is exciting and motivating for them.
Since my classroom next year will be an inclusion based preschool rather than a self-contained instructional classroom, I have been searching for new books to help my students adjust to the changes in their class environment. While searching, I found the Learning to Get Along series of books.
These books reinforce a variety of social-emotional skills.
From resolving conflicts and sharing to being kind and polite, these books will help my students learn the skills they need to get along with others! The books are engaging with simple text and great illustrations. Each book also offers discussion questions and activity ideas in the back to help reinforce the learning.
