Product Description
This Notebook creation is a quick means of “checking in” on kid’s moods. It’s a simplified version of Marc Brackett’s “Mood Meter”, which I found to be very effective with my classes when I worked with children who were labeled “emotionally disturbed”. You're showing that you respect how the kids are feeling, regardless of reasons for those emotions. They catch that and appreciate the nod.

I developed this particular design as a change of pace from the standard Mood Meter. The kids I worked with were very street smart and got bored easily. By alternating this program with the Mood Meter, on occasion, I was able to keep their interest while also maintaining Brackett's model as the "expected" format from which we worked lessons in graphing along with the standard recording of moods.

I’ve found that this type of presentation is effective with many of the young children with autism who I now serve, as well. It's fun and a good way of introducing them to and sustaining the concepts of "self" and "emotions".

No matter what population I've worked with, the choice of animated emoticons has been very popular among the students.

Rather than create lots of pages with different emoticon combinations, I’ve included instruction pages (for anyone in need) on how to add/delete names and how to modify the work to better serve your class dynamic (some need less choices than others).
