Mentor Text Linky 7.28.13

We are linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text Linky.  This week the theme is Social Studies.  The book we chose, The Way I Feel, is such a great one.  

This book is useful for readers of ages 4 to 8 years. Feelings come and feelings go - I never know what they will be! Silly or angry, happy or sad - they are all a part of me! Romp with your child through this delightful book of feelings words. The book will give them a vocabulary of emotion, to ease their way through life. "The Way I Feel" is a wonderful addition to any child's library, explaining the world out there as well as the world within. It features cute googly eyes to inspire happiness, silliness and fun!


After reading this book, we make a class book called The Way We Feel.  Each page in the book talks about a feeling that people have (Sometimes we feel happy, Sometimes we feel sad, Sometimes we feel angry, etc).  On each page we take a picture of a group of kiddos showing that feeling (for example on the "Sometimes we feel angry" page the group of kiddos in this picture have angry faces / angry gestures).  There are 12 pages; so most likely you will need 2-3 kiddos in each picture.  If you don't want to use a camera; you could always have them draw the pictures instead.  You can also have students label the picture.  This class book is one the students enjoy going back to throughout the year.
