Super cute and my students love them!
There are so many uses for these cards.
Can’t wait to add the smaller size to our little spot of emotion family!
This series is not just for education, it is a fundamental building block for helping children develop emotional regulation. We love this series and use it daily within our practice. - Dr. Nikki Woller, Ph.D., LCSW
If you have or work with kids on a SEL level these adorable and durable little spots are for you!! These guys take Diane’s incredible books to an all new hands on level! Making lessons, cuddle time, and teaching moments even more powerful. Kids just love these spots! They are soft, squishy, cuddly, and super durable! I will actually be ordering even more sets as gifts!
A Little Respectful SPOT
Perfect for those that don’t yet have a large emotional vocabulary.
I teach students with special needs and the spots are the tool I have been missing to teach social emotional skills. Students love them and they are such a helpful visual to accompany the books! My students truly identify with the spots and have been helpful when students need to calm themselves. I would recommend these to any teacher!!
The plush is so cute and soft and I love the pocket! My kiddos are so excited about the curriculum just from seeing the mini plush and this large one!
A Little SPOT of Feelings & Emotions Educator Guide (Spiral Bound)
We each have an emotion plushy but my kid likes them so much that he wouldn’t let go of them! Great way for younger kids to expressed themselves if they’re shy, but might not for older kids. Older kids (including adults) like them because they’re soft and huggable!
Love this book. Creative and positive. I love a good call to action book. My first grade student and I painted stones with a neighbor. They decided to make one for each family member to share. My stone, a love bug, was given to a little sister. A retiring teacher friend loved my "Bee Grateful" Bee stone. I took the book up to the school that I sub at for the Kindergarten and first grade team to see. I have no doubt they will be getting books in the future and planning a Scribble Stone day. You are an inspiration. Thank you.
I use these books in my preschool classroom and they are absolutely wonderful!! They are simple enough for my 3 year olds to understand and engage with and have started some great conversations during circle time. I highly recommend them!
awesome. Nice visual cards that are easy on the eyes! My students love them!
We’ve heard from numerous educators that they sometimes feel like they are on an island with very little help in sight. That is why we created numerous Educator Resources. We spent months talking with teachers, counselors, and homeschool parents, and listening to what they would need to make teaching EMOTIONS both educational and fun. Every item we carry is carefully designed and selected to fit a specific need.
Adorable Learning Toys
These soft and super snugly SPOTS help your child identify and connect with their emotions and feelings!
Beyond the Book Activities
We have discovered that incorporating beyond the book activities not only encourages children to read more but it also helps them retain the information they learned better!
"One of my first week of activities is going to be a project using Scribble Stones by Diane Alber. Each student will get a stone with the poem I created (thanks to @la_calaverita_2016 @sunnyk_35 and @bruinliz00 for your help). Then, I will read the book to my kiddos, and they will create their own scribble stone. During the school year, there will be various activities that the kiddos will do that connect to their personal scribble stone. I’m really looking forward to this! I hope my kiddos will enjoy it!" -@teach_run_repeat72

A Little SPOT of...
The “Inspire to Create a Better You!” series was originally developed to help children visualize their emotions as spots so it would be easier to identify and manage them. It later developed to explain hard topics like kindness, responsibility and honesty to encourage discussion in a fun simple way that children can understand. This series stays relevant and can be an essential learning tool for children. They can be used for social skills, life skills, whole-group lessons, and all those teachable moments in between.
Fun for the classroom! Added Jingle!
This series has near-infinite replayability" not only as story books but arts activities as well. They help children understand that something as simple as a scribble or a snippet can not only be a great story but a masterpiece as well. It gives children confidence to create their own art despite their artistic ability while teaching them important lessons in empathy, kindness and inclusion.
Never let a unicorn…
This is a humorous series that weaves together art principles, believing in yourself, character traits, empathy and educational standards. This series specifically brings in how imagination plays into a child’s learning.
