Sharing Books for Social and Emotional Understanding
Stories are a powerful means to explore dilemmas and issues that children encounter every day. In this insightful book, the authors take 21 of our most-loved and best-known picture books and look at how to share them effectively with children.
Each picture book covered has two sections of guidance: one to be used at school and a second to be photocopied and used in a home environment. Both sections contain a story outline, talking points and ideas for activities. In addition, the classroom sections include circle time ideas, motions for class debates and assembly suggestions. These sections can be used for small group work and one-to-one activities.
This innovative book explores such themes as self-awareness, managing feelings, motivation, empathy and social skills, and will in turn address issues such as bullying, loss, inclusion, missing mum and general behaviour.
