Emotions are important, but they shouldn’t dictate our behavior and thinking. Feelings are like warning flags that tell us we need to deal with something. It is possible for children to understand their feelings and to learn how to deal with them, especially when those feelings come fast and furious! This class is based on biblical principles.
In this class, students will learn:
1. the importance and purpose of feelings,
2. what they mean,
3. and then how to regulate or change their feelings!
Through biblical principles, visuals, drawings, instruction, role-play, and practice, students will begin to live with and control their own feelings in a way that brings glory to God.

The Lemons-Aid Way: Our Approach to Teaching and Learning is Explicit!
Explicit teaching is a method of instruction students desperately need! It is the opposite of a constructivist philosophy whereby students try to construct meaning themselves.
Instead of leaving students to magically figure out how to write an essay or read or do a geometry proof, we teach explicitly, which is backed by a large body of evidence, and it’s how Mrs. Lemons teaches her undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in college to teach! We do it this way because it’s how kids learn.
Explicit instruction is “a structured, systematic, and effective methodology for teaching academic skills. It is called explicit because it is an unambiguous and direct approach to teaching that includes both instructional design and delivery procedures. Explicit instruction is characterized by a series of supports or scaffolds, whereby students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target, and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.”
-Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching by Anita L. Archer and Charles A. Hughes.
Anita Archer trained Mrs. Lemons in workshops, and it changed her teaching. Read a little more about the research behind explicit teaching here and here.
