Help me give my students a kid-friendly, deeply important, and comprehensive set of social-emotional learning reading materials. The 'Spot' series will help my students develop much needed emotional awareness and self-regulation skills.
My little slice of our elementary school is a wonderful self-contained classroom with eleven, bright, enthusiastic, little learners. Many of my kiddos are English Language Learners and have Autism Spectrum Disorder. Visuals, routines, real-life experiences and sensory integration are essential for their success.
My students range from first graders up to third graders with varying exceptionalities and cultural backgrounds.
Though they are at different stages of development, they all share the desire to grow their minds and hearts. We are a classroom family with a shared mission and strong values. With a lot of love, differentiation, hard work and many helping hands, we will succeed!
The 'Spot' series books will teach my special needs students about crucial social-emotional and life skills. The high-interest books have built-in strategies so students are not merely reading about the skills but are using tools to learn the skills. The skills they learn will apply to their everyday life and improve their social-emotional skills overall.
The 'Spot' book in the series that we are requesting teach important information and strategies about sadness, love, anger, anxiety, happiness, peacefulness, confidence, patience, responsibility, safety, thankfulness, courage, and overall emotional wellness.
These books are of high-interest to my students and will support lifelong skill development.
