bookshelves: feelings, social-skills, vocabulary, animals-and-insects

Feelings in different situations is the highlight of this book. This book can be used as a resource to teach children vocabulary for their emotions.It also teaches children one of the most valuable lessons of life- Team work always pays off. The way Swimmy finds his way back home can be used to talk to children about problem solving skills.

After reading and discussing the book with children divide them into small groups of 4 each. Give each group a bucket of real and found things like sticks, leaves, pebbles,sand,empty plastic bottles, newspaper etc. Ask them to work together to create something. Then ask each group to explain what they created. This activity will give them an opportunity to work together as a team.
