An Interactive Reading Book of Emotions by Joan Green
“I found the Interactive Reading Book ‘How Do I Feel?’ fascinating and will certainly be recommending it both on my webpage and at future presentations throughout the United States.” – Tony Attwood, PhD
This engaging 8″x5″ book offers a fun, wonderful way to help students learn to identify and express their emotions. Through the process of matching, identifying and labeling the picture cards, students come to understand certain emotions better.
Once they can associate the 18 emotions with a corresponding picture card, they can start the reading program which allows them to label their feelings. Emotions include: happy, shy, bored, embarrassed, proud, pain, lonely, surprised, stressed, jealous, mad, frustrated, worried, sorry, guilty, scared, sad, excited.
Open-ended sentence pages at the end of the book allow teachers, therapists, parents, or children to make up their own sentences.
Interactive Reading Books
encourage speech development, reading skills, fine motor coordination and a variety of other functional skills, all in a fun, interactive way.
Utilizing the power of visual strategies, special needs students of varying levels – as well as beginning readers – learn to associate pictures with words and then create simple sentences visually by attaching (with velcoins) the correct picture cards to the correct squares on each sentence page. Students then re-read (or sign, or communicate) the sentences aloud.
The tactile and sonic nature of moving the picture cards and placing them on the correct squares on each sentence page is, for most students, a highly-enjoyable experience. Activities and directions included.
