In social skills this week, we focused a lot on feelings. We read the book The Way I Feel and honed in a few specific feelings. The children colored in the areas on a body outline where they usually feel specific feelings--like fear, sadness, happiness, etc. This was a difficult, but fun activity! We also read the book How Are You Peeling? My fifth grade group gave the Conversation Go Round game another go. On Thursday, everyone read the book Interrupting Chicken--a personal favorite of mine. We discussed the concept of interrupting and certain instances when you may interrupt (fire, injury, emergency, etc.) On Friday, we enjoyed our weekly game day and spent some time negotiating through some social situations that always crop up when we play together.
Have an awesome weekend and stay healthy! I can attest to the icky germs going around!
