Using Picture Books to Teach Social Emotional Skills

I love teaching social skills using picture books - because at the same time, you are also addressing language development.  Story grammar and social skills go hand in hand when you use an engaging picture book story (which, by the way, can be used with older students too - it just has to be presented in an age appropriate way).  I especially like books that address particular feelings.  Students who use these books are then more familiar with the concept of that feeling the next time it is encountered in a story grammar or ELA lesson.  Click on the link here for a good current list of books to use from We Are Teachers:   50 Must-Have Picture Books to Teach Social Emotional Skills
