A Place to Connect Teachers and Support Children



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!

  1. My children also love One and Zero by Kathryn Otoshi. Here is a post I wrote about them.
    We often relate our feelings back to these books and after reading My Many Coloured Days as well the 3 books seem to be almost on rotation every day. They have really captured their imagination and thinking about feelings.
