For many children, drawing is a more pleasurable activity than writing, which is why this resource has 48 activities that explore emotional issues through drawing. These activities and worksheets use drawing as the basis for exploring emotional issues and promoting children's emotional literacy.
The book is intended for anyone who spends time with children, including teachers, learning mentors, therapists and parents. It is organised in three sections:
For each activity the instructions include a clearly stated aim, a suggested outline of how to conduct the activity and two optional follow-on ideas. Flexibility is central to the design; the activities can stand alone or be incorporated into an emotional literacy programme. The finished drawings can be displayed or kept by children as a visual reminder of their learning. Includes free CD Rom containing the whole book in colour. Age: 4-11.
