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.
