  2. Engaging Literate Minds: Developing Children’s Social, Emotional, and Intellectual Lives, K–3

    Interestingly, educators are recognising that for children to thrive intellectually they need socially and emotionally healthy classrooms. Conveniently, this is exactly what parents have always wanted for their children - classrooms that offer and grow positive relationships and behaviour, emotional self-regulation and a sense of wellbeing. Using the guiding principles from Peter Johnston’s bestselling professional resources, Choice Words and Opening Minds, Peter and six colleagues began a journey to create just such classrooms - environments in which children meaningfully engage with each other through reading, writing, making and discussing books. In Engaging Literate Minds, you’ll discover how these teachers struggled and succeeded in building such classrooms.

  3. Sharing the Blue Crayon: How to Integrate Social, Emotional, and Literacy Learning
    Social and emotional learning is at the heart of good teaching, but as standards and testing requirements consume classroom time and divert teachers’ focus, these critical skills often get sidelined. In Sharing the Blue Crayon, Mary Anne Buckley shows teachers how to incorporate social and emotional learning into a busy day and then extend these skills to literacy lessons for young children. Through simple activities such as read-alouds, sing-alongs, murals, and performances, students learn how to get along in a group, empathize with others, develop self-control and give and receive feedback, all while becoming confident readers and writers.
