Tell me about your day (click on this link to access the PDF!)
Yesterday, or so, I lose track of time these days, I wrote a little post about a new behaviour management technique I’m trialling with my Littles. I’ve had such lovely comments about it, and it’s continuing to surprise me in such a positive way that I thought I’d share it with you. In the photo below you’ll see that my first attempt didn’t have a good colour spectrum, and the Littles have told me they needed two “calm” emotions; one sad, one happy. So I’ve moved things around just a little, and added more appropriate colours.
We find that sometimes, the colours are more helpful than the words. Equally, the three “faces” I drew alongside can be all that’s needed. My patience and time haven’t allowed me to put those into my computer – I’m still relying on that good old toolset: hand and pen. Have a look at this photo to see what I mean:
I print them out small to paste into their school contact books, but I’ve also provided a full A4 one for those of you whom it would suit better. I need to keep a record of their moods, but you might want to laminate a big one and start afresh each day – especially if you’re only using it at the weekend?
Good luck, and I hope it helps!
