Ms. Miller from Lawrence MA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need picture books that teach value life lessons to improve their social and emotional skills. These books are needed to increase their self awareness, emotional regulation abilities, and social skills.
Many of my students live in broken homes and/or have immigrated to the United States and attend a school that has limited resources and high expectations to achieve excellence. Most of the children's social and emotional needs are not met at home and with the rigorous academic agenda at school, teachers find limited time to address important life skills.
As the Yoga and Mindfulness specials teacher I have the opportunity to teach children how to regulate and express their emotions, take responsibility for their actions/words, learn strategies to deal with stressful situations and practice respect towards others and themselves.
My students need to be explicitly taught these important social and emotional skills to ensure their success in school and ultimately in life.
My students struggle with controlling intense emotions, showing kindness and empathy in difficult situations, being socially aware, and other valuable social and life skills. The picture books requested teach these lessons in an enjoyable way for young readers.
These books can teach lessons on resilience, standing up to bullies, being a good friend, having a positive outlook, and a better understanding of emotions.
Without these skills my students will struggle with the amount of external challenges they face day to day. For example, "Sam's Pet Temper," can teach young children how to handle intense emotions. "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes" can teach us how to learn from and accept mistakes.
