ELSA Resources for your SEN Toolkit

There are so many resources on the website that are useful for SENDCOs, Teachers and other professionals working with children. Put them in your SEN Toolkit. Check out just a small fraction of the resources offered for free on the website.

A set of emotion fans is an absolute MUST have in your SEN Toolkit. You can print, laminate and cut these out. Put on a split pin or a treasury tag. These are particularly good because they have synonyms of the emotion words so you can help teach more emotions vocabulary. Ask the child how they feel regularly so they get into the habit of labelling their feelings.
