One goal which is ongoing is for the children to identify and talk about feelings. The goal should go beyond merely identifying facial expressions, but for the child to tell others what makes him feel certain ways. The reasons are different for every child. I found a nice little activity on Boardmaker Share that I was able to convert to a simple book. Although there are only three feelings identified in this book, if you have Boardmaker, this is easily expandable to include other feelings. The icons for examples of why they feel certain ways can also be changed to fit the specific environment of the children you work with.

I love this! I will definitely use it. And you're right - a common mistake is to work on goals based around activities when it should be the other way around. Also I nominated you for two blogging awards: it's basically a fun way of connecting with other bloggers. Here's the link if you're interested. http://speakingofkids.blogspot.com/2012/08/blog-awards-are-going-round.htmlReplyDelete
Hi. I would really like to use this but for some reason when I click on the link I only get a google drive website. Can you help?ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!
It's all still up there (I didn't change anything!). It does work better if you have a gmail account and you are signed in. Otherwise, I think you just download without viewing the pdf version in Google docs. The Boardmaker version can't be previewed anyway--just downloaded straight from the site. Hope this helps!Delete
