Pushing. Screaming. Tattling. Sound familiar? How do you keep children active and learning in a primary classroom--without chaos?
As an elementary teacher facing these challenges, Barbara Porro created the Rainbow Kids Program to introduce young children to social concepts and help them build the skills necessary to resolve conflict and empathize with others.
The centerpiece of this 10-session program is the story of the Rainbow Kids, an imaginary community of children whose emotions are conveyed by the weather around them. Through simple metaphors such as "spreading sunshine" and "feeling cloudy," Porro translates abstract notions of feelings, choices, and behavioral consequences into physical expressions primary students can easily understand. Story-related lessons and activities help them learn to identify and talk about their feelings, express their emotions in respectful ways, and make better choices about how to treat one another. Teachers who have used the Rainbow Kids Program report a decrease in problem behaviors, an improvement in the quality of classroom relationships, and more time to focus on academics.
This book comes with a master copy of the Rainbow Kids story and all supporting materials necessary for program implementation, including lesson plans, practical tips, step-by-step scripts, and recommended resources.
