New Family Resource @ free spirit Publishing!
Posted by Talula on October 2, 2008
Hey To All Who Work With Kids- I have a new family resource (also terrific for teachers) listed here!
Free Spirit Publishing – meeting kids’ social & emotional needs since 1983 – materials for parents, teachers, counselors, schools (in the area of special needs: gifted/LD/ADD, parenting resources, social skills & relationships, emotional learning & personal growth, bullying & conflict resolution, charactor education & community service learning, and school success.)
Hello to all those in need of help with supporting children’s emotional, charactor and/or spiritual needs. This is a quick note about a fabulous resource that i had forgotten about for a while. It has not been listed here on this blog yet; but
When I received a catalog from them the other day (after about 5 years since i was a customer???) I knew that it would be something needed by many parents and teachers. (Now listed under ‘Families’ & ‘Family Counselors’ in right column of landing page!)
Their publications range the gamut from bully-free zones to charactor education. Books are available for toddlers (such as Hands Are Not for Hitting), school age (How to Do Homework Without Throwing Up & Kids Need To Be Safe) and many to help with all kinds of teen issues (like Too Stressed To Think?; When a Friend Dies; How to Talk With Teens About Love, Realtionships, and S-E-X; and Bringing Up Parents – The Teenagers Handbook).
Browse & grab a book to help you cope with whatever your family needs are, here at www.freespirit.com and teachers will find many great sets of materials for classrooms like What Do You Stand For?; Feelings In a Jar; Please Stand Up ; or Bully Free Zone posters, DVDs, and curriculum handouts.
