Our K-2 SIS’ers are learning about emotions!
As our students are growing in their academics, they’re also growing in their social lives, and it’s important for them to know what those things they’re feeling inside their bodies are!
Students are introduced to the four basic feelings of happy, sad, mad, and scared. I show a presentation (with various embedded videos) and students identify the feelings and demonstrate what the feeling looks like on their own faces (first silent, then with sound). Students give reasons why they would feel that way. I then guide the students toward appropriate expression of feelings.
After, we read Fill A Bucket by Carol McCloud, and then learners complete a Feelings worksheet, which includes drawing a pictures of what they personally look like when experiencing those (4) feelings, or a picture of something that makes them feel those (4) feelings.
