Product Description

Product Description

This book is purely about practical activities. Every activity has a purpose and a learning objective attached to it. It contains just simple activities, games and crafts that focus on teaching ways for a child to begin to recognise, understand, label, express and manage their anger.
From a very young age children need to be taught about emotions. This will help them develop into emotionally literate adults who are able to empathise, express and regulate their feelings. This book is suitable for Nursery schools, Primary schools, ELSAs, Teaching assistants, Learning mentors, Teachers and parents. Some of the activities can be set up in early year’s settings to allow children to learn independently after having the activity modelled to them first. However, when dealing with ‘anger’ it is often useful to work one to one with a child, especially where teaching techniques to express and regulate their emotions appropriately. Children need to know that every emotion is normal and everyone feels emotions but it is important to deal with emotions in a safe way so that no one is hurt, property isn’t damaged and there is no self-harm.
Resources where possible make use of everyday items and items for recycling. Begin collecting old magazines and comics which are suitable for young children, lolly sticks, plain white paper plates, white plastic picnic plates. Collect pebbles when you go to the seaside, save plastic bottles, buy some cheap playground chalk and collect lots of art materials.
Garden centres sell small pebbles if you can’t get to the seaside and pound shops sell very cheap white paper plates which are used in a few activities.
I really hope you enjoy the activities in this book and use them often with your children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for working with emotional literacy 23 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How I wish I'd had this in my toolbox when I was working in schools! I highly recommend this excellent set of practical exercises and activities for anyone working with children in primary schools. I'd suggest that it should be a must for anyone training to be a teacher or teaching assistant.
It will be most useful for teaching assistants and learning mentors, though I think teachers will find some helpful ideas in it too. Anyone running circle times or nurture groups will also get a lot from it.
Too often we think problems with recognising and understanding emotions only happen when children have special needs or specific issues. These issues can crop up for any child and the ideas in this book link very nicely to SEAL.
These exercises can be used 1-1 or with small groups. some of them could be adapted for larger groups.
The book is well laid out. You know just what you will need for each activity. You do not need to buy expensive equipment or resources to use with it.
I love having on the Kindle and I actually have it on my iPhone! That way it is easily to hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Resource 8 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This wonderful book is a long list of wonderful activities for children to help them understand their anger and what to do with it. Each activity is described in a very user-friendly way, and needs very simple resources which you're very likely to have around the home/classroom anyway. Furthermore, the activities are such that children will enjoy doing them. I hold 1:1 sessions with young children to help them learn about their emotions, and I will be using the activities in this book to make those sessions more interactive and fun.

Having Learning objectives for sessions and a relating activity is superb. As a newly qualified ELSA I am finding these two books in the series invaluable. I just hope that there are more to follow on the other ELSA topics.
