I’m really excited to share this new product with you because teaching social-emotional skills doesn’t have to be difficult! With Tab Books, students’ drawings, writing, and graphic organizers come together to create a customized book they can be proud of and use a reference whenever they need reminders! Great on their own or as part of an Interactive Notebook, Tab Books are a tried and true way to get your students excited about learning! I have my students for 30 minutes sessions and they usually take 2-3 sessions to complete.
This book helps students learn how to recognize and cope with a variety of emotions. There are 8 different feelings total, but books can be made with 4 or 8 pages to suit your students best.
The best part? Print and go. No fancy supplies or prep needed!
I have several other tab books and I’m planning to add more in the future, so check back often for new ones! Any topics you’d like to see? Leave them in the comments!
If there’s one thing I know about my students it’s that they LOVE trading cards – sports cards, cards from their favorite television show, any kind of cards. AND they’ve memorized virtually every statistic possible about their given characters or sports star. However, they don’t love learning every detail about focusing or staying on-task quite as much, until I showed them these!
These cards are designed to look like their other favorite cards, but highlight various strategies for improving focus, work completion, and organization. They’re great for students who have been diagnosed with ADHD or other attention difficulties. Each card also features an interactive activity or technique to help students be successful.
These cards are great for activities (ideas below), or can be displayed as posters or held together on a ring for students to keep with them as a reminder.
Cards are presented in full-page (8.5″ x 11″) and trading card (2.5″ x 3.5″) size!
– “Go Fish” or “Matching,”: Print 2 or 4 sets and play as usual.
– “War”: Print 3-4 sets. Play as usual – the card with the highest star difficulty wins.
– “Spoons”: Print 4 sets. Play as usual.
– Have students draw 3 cards. Role play one of the 3 choices.
– Charades: Students draw a strategy to act out while others guess.
The other day, I came across this great goal planning sheet. I was looking for a way to help my students create goals for themselves to work toward over the summer and thought this would work perfectly! It was created by 3rd Grade Thoughts and offered for free on TeachersPayTeachers! I especially love that it gives students an opportunity to evaluate their own progress toward a goal rather than just discussing the steps and final outcome. So head on over and pick up this awesome product!
