Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love this book. It is one of those books that I can use for my own self which makes it even easier to use with my kids. Thank you for such a fantastic and foundational resource for social emotional learned.
Basically a spot turns up at two kids' house, (same kids from other Spot books) where it tells them it's there to celebrate. The girl tells him it was her birthday last week. The spot tells her there's other stuff to celebrate and how celebrating is a great feeling. It encourages the celebration of achieving goals you've set for yourself or when someone else does, or when you or someone else reaches milestones. The spot comes up with an acronym called R.A.D. (Realistic, Action Plan, Details) to set goals. It then tells the kids (and the reader) how to do it with examples such as reading 60 books in a year might deserve a pizza party. As opposed to five might mean a bookmark. Or if you ride your bike after learning to ride with training wheels etc, then you might celebrate with an ice cream. Or just cheering with positive words, and high fives for a job well done.
A Little Spot of Celebration has been formatted to be read in landscape mode (holding your device horizontally), where it takes up the entire width of the screen (there's white rectangles on top and bottom of the page). Words and pictures display together on the screen like a traditional picture book open to two pages. A lot of self published Kindle authors can't be bothered to format their work and it displays like a mess with bits of text on one page and an image on a small part of the screen on another, so I always like to take the time to point out when authors care about their reader's experience and their own work enough to take the time to format it.
I have absolutely loved incorporating the “little spots” into my classroom this year. They are such a fun, informative and engaging way to teach my 1st graders about their emotions. Good or bad. Large or small. I’m looking forward to reading this on the last day of school this year and reading it next year when we make our academic learning goals!
It’s like Diane knows my kids!! This book addresses some important points, for example, you can celebrate any thing at any time (missed birthday? No problem!) and setting realistic goals for things you want: no, we can’t have a pet rattlesnake, but yes you can save up for a goldfish (my example, not hers ;)
