“In a time when social and emotional learning has been shown to affect every aspect of our lives, this book explores each of the concepts that comprise SEL, as defined by leading experts in the field. An educator with nearly 30 years of experience teaching first grade, Diane created age-appropriate, fun activities that will draw in younger learners to reinforce and extend the lessons. For use across a variety of settings, this book will truly help any child develop into a healthy, successful individual.” —Kelly Roys, M.Ed., elementary school counselor
“I have a hard time explaining to my students what feelings are, how we can be aware of them, and how to regulate them. I truly appreciate the kid-friendly language used throughout. This book is especially needed right now when teachers are expected to teach SEL, but don't have a curriculum or tools to tackle this important subject. This book is a must for all primary educators!” —Maribel Sheehan, primary educator and reading coach
“Owning our feelings and learning how to express them in healthy, pro-social ways are important lessons for every young child to learn. Diane Romo’s Feelings Activity Book for Children is a great kid-friendly guide to accomplish this in fun, informative ways. I highly recommend it!” —Trudy Ludwig, bestselling author of The Invisible Boy
“This is a valuable social-emotional learning resource. With the flexibility of reading aloud or inviting readers to engage independently, the activities allow children to understand their emotions and analyze common scenarios with tools such as the problem meter. Moreover, strategies like I-messages, ‘take 5,’ and breathing exercises provide children with the opportunity to immediately implement their new learning. Throughout the book, Diane Romo’s experience as a classroom teacher and a mother is reflected in the developmentally appropriate explanations.” —Christine Walsh, PhD, associate professor, elementary education/early childhood department
