As most of you know, I love to read and I feel it is so important to share my love of reading with the children! My favorite books to read are ones about feelings. In combination with using Dr. Becky Bailey (stay tuned for more information as I will be blogging about her latest text soon), who talks about I love you rituals (ways to connect with your child or student on a daily basis), guidance, understanding your teaching/parenting style, and helping the classroom be a group of sucessful learners, and using the vocabulary words as part of your everyday lives it will help give children language for how they are feeling. More language equals less frustration!
