Communication is Necessary for Growth
Along with identifying our thoughts, feelings and needs, being able to communicate them clearly and properly is vital for personal progress. This applies to everyone, whether adult or child, and it is especially true for special needs children. Recognizing how essential it is that children master communication basics, Really Good Stuff presents these teacher-recommended activities, displays and classroom tools to help. They can also be used in both distance learning and traditional classroom scenarios.
Help Students to Identify and Express Feelings
To facilitate kids' recognition of feelings, the How I Feel Today Mirror offers a creative way in which children can be encouraged to be aware of their current state of mind. Identifying and talking about how they feel in an atmosphere of support promotes kids' positive self-image. The Understanding Feelings Set is another fun and interactive way for children to learn about and express emotions.
Effectively stimulate student discussion among groups or the entire class with our Morning Meeting Chips. With 40 unique, kid-friendly questions, the chips prompt children to talk about themselves, their family or ideas, which allows others in the class to get to know them better. This game is a great icebreaker at the beginning of a new schoolyear.
Teaching students to let you know what they need without causing distractions is another area where our products can provide solutions. The Deluxe I Need Help! Mini-Flip-Charts Set and Student Response Fans are great ways to train children to express themselves without interrupting others, as well as to be patient while waiting for teacher acknowledgment.
