How Do I Feel? An Interactive Reading Book of Emotions

$49.00

by Joan Green

for ages 4 – 12

Through this book children learn to identify pictures of emotions.

Sentences such as, “I feel ________ when I do a good job,” allow the students to label their feelings. (There are no “correct” answers.) Open-ended questions at the back of the book allow teachers, therapists, parents or children to make up their own sentences. Even if a student is non-verbal or doesn’t speak English, once they can identify the pictures, you can read the sentence and have them give you or point to the picture that labels their emotion.

Another fun activity and a means of assessing a students emotions is to put the pictures face down and have students pick a picture. Ask them to give you an example of what might make them feel that way. A student picks a card that says, “excited”, ask the student to tell you something that would make them feel excited.

Buying Tip: This is an excellent book for kids to learn how to match, identify and label specific emotions. Of particular value are the sections that have a card with a comment “I feel …”.  This book is a recommended resource to use together with The Zones of Regulation.

I Have Feelings Too is the result of requests from users of the highly-regarded, “How Do I Feel?” The difference being “I Have Feelings, Too!” uses pictures and sentences appropriate for older kids (teens and adults but also useful as an extension exercise for younger kids). Check it out HERE.

The Explosive Child: A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children

$30.00

Author:  Dr Ross Greene

A groundbreaking approach to understanding and parenting children who frequently exhibit severe fits of temper and other intractable behaviours, from a distinguished clinician and pioneer in this field.

Buying Tip: We here at The Social Mind are big advocates for Dr Ross Greene’s approach to behaviour, as Ross says “kids do well if they can do well”.  In this remarkable book Dr Ross Greene explains that at the route of behaviour issues are a kid’s “lagging skills and unsolved problems”.  In this book Ross will not only explain your child/student/client but will give you hope with a productive approach that teaches skills and shows just how ineffective punishments are at changing behaviour.  We believe in this approach so much that we regularly bring Ross to Australia to conduct training in his approach to behaviour.  You can watch Ross on Youtube here and if you read this review and want to purchase the book, use the promotion code Ross for a discount.
