If you're a counselor or teacher, you know from the behavior management issues you face with students that managing feelings can be tough when you're a kid. Problem feelings can really disrupt a classroom and impair learning.
"You're the boss of your feelings but you have to know them to control them." This clear message on Poster #500 from the education experts at Youth Change Workshops is an invaluable tool for you to use with students in your classroom or counseling office. All counselors and teachers need to consider how providing this type of quick aid can improve student well-being.
Designed with a little boy showing a range of emotions, the labels alongside each picture will help young children learn to name their emotions so they can understand them better. The pictures include "happy," "sad," "mad," "relaxed," "frustrated," and "anxious." Poster #500 is also a great way to help students on the autism spectrum learn to identify emotions in others for improved social interactions. It can be a help to students with many other severe emotional issues as well. A must-have for anyone working with youth, students will be able to relate to the emotions demonstrated on the poster.
