In this interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to a wealth of children’s literature that can be used as a jumping-off point for teaching Emotional Literacy.
Together we will brainstorm and share ideas for expanding emotional content found in books, stories or legends and come up with ways to extend that teaching to other aspects of your program.
Participants will leave with a book list and the generated ideas of how to get started right away!
