In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features a simple strategy that children can use to express how they are feeling at any given time. I have used this idea as part of my classroomâ€™s morning routing every day of my teaching career. The strategy is a variation of one described in Jeanne Gibbsâ€™ wonderful book, Tribes. Give this idea a try in class with your students or at home with your children.
Several months ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' "
Each of my â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ videos features 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and addresses a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
