For children with special need it is very hard to talk, recognize, analyze the emotions. It is difficult to talk how you feel in this moment, and how you are going to feel when some situation happens. It is difficult to use your memories and your imagination.
That is why after visiting Italy we decided to prepare for our older students activity which increase recognizing and talking about emotions. We use different techniques, photos, tasks to show our students how important it is to know what we feel and how to talk about it.
When we were in Italy Aleksandra took part in activities for students where they prepared cookies using different staff and tools. So in our school we also made cookies with younger students. We spent amazing time together preparing, talking, smiling and of course eating cookies made by ourselves.
