Emotional intelligence - Can you Build a Monster?

Emotional intelligence - Can you Build a Monster?

This game looks at 16 different emotions including the basics of of happy, sad, angry, scared, surprised and disgusted. It is ideal for children from about 5 years old. My recommendation is that it is played with one or two children due to the space needed. Children take it in turns to throw a die and move that number of spaces on the base board. They will either land on a head, tummy or bottom. They take one of those cards and name the emotion. If it is a head they are seeing the facial expression. If it is a tummy they are seeing what someone might say who is feeling that emotion and if it is a bottom they are seeing the emotion word. The idea of the game is to build a complete monster.

Autumn Winter Sensory Story

Autumn Winter Sensory Story

This is a sensory story I created for my topic 'seasons'. This was written for a PMLD/ CLDD class. I have written it with the sentence, the sense, the sensory experience and what I and my TAs are looking for and observing throughout the sessions. Repeat story throughout the term to enable the child to develop anticipation, investigation, awareness, preference and much more. Could also be used in an EYFS KS1 class.

Daily Living Skills-College and Career Workbooks Bundle Pack

Here is a cost-saving bundle pack to help walk your students through the skills needed to manage a career or post-secondary education. WHO AM I? COLLEGE AND CAREER—This book allows students to examine their IEP’s, advocate for themselves, analyze their learning styles and explore job aptitude. (Pgs. 44) GETTING A PAYCHECK—Students explore time sheets, gross and net pay, types of deductions, employer expectations, and budgeting. (Pgs. 60) TIME MANAGEMENT—Learn what kind of time manager they are, why they procrastinate, methods to overcome, prioritizing, how to stop worrying and more.

Learn about the highway grid and finding your way, public bus and train services, how to study for a driver’s license, bicycle safety, police etiquette, road rage and emergency road equipment. (Pgs. 46) Like all Daily Living Skills workbooks, this series is written on a high third/low fourth grade level and targeted to the mild-to-moderate population (although, you’ll see in the ratings, many teachers of students with moderate-to-severe disabilities have used the program successfully.) All vocabulary is defined immediately in context so students build confidence in the information. Pages are light and airy with lots of bullet-points and pictures, and are set with a tone that is friendly, yet respects the sensibilities of this age group. Every book contains an answer key and Parent Letter explaining what transition skills you are addressing along with suggestions for parent follow-up at home in compliance with federal mandates. Lessons can easily be used in a “buy today/use today” fashion with no training and little preparation. Or, if you are a newer teacher or new to special education, the DAILY LIVING SKILLS TEACHERS MANUAL gives information on classroom organization and program set-up along with Indicator 13 support and a variety of written ITP goals for each workbook. (You do not need to buy the Teacher’s Manual—it is offered at the request of some teachers.) Like all the other bundle packs, you can save 10% or more by purchasing books in bundles. If you are unfamiliar with the series, please download our free sample, "Doing Laundry" on this site to see the format and tone used in all the books in this series or preview pages on the individual titles of each book which are also offered on this site.
