Stages: Emotion Cards have been an excellent tool for teaching our daughter not just about her emotions but also how to handle different situations. I simply show her a card and ask her what she thinks is happening, how each person feels and what they could do to become happy or what she thinks might happen next.
If she has trouble with a card we talk about different things the people could do from sharing to apologizing to asking for help. She’s learning great ways to deal with her emotions. I’d definitely recommend these especially if you’d child has trouble expressing themselves or dealing with certain situations.
A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
