Inside: A whole library of resources for teaching feelings and emotions to kids, at home or school.
Managing our emotions is hard, whether you are four or six or forty six! Teaching our children to effectively manage their feelings and emotions is such an important, ongoing task for both teachers and parents – there is no one-size-fits-all lesson for helping children to understand feelings, it takes many, regular touches as a child moves through the following stages of emotional development;
- Recognising a range of emotions in themselves and others
- Recognising the physical and emotional responses we have to each of these emotions
- Learning to express their own feelings verbally
- Learning to calm oneself down in the face of overwhelming emotions, and
- Learning to treat others with kindness and empathy.
Useful in both the home and the classroom, this collection of resources and activity suggestions includes tools that can act as useful prompts for discussion with children about a wide range of emotions, and guide you as you help your children to develop effective strategies for managing overwhelming, stressful feelings and emotions.
The collection includes feelings and emotions based printable posters, games, booklists and activity ideas to use with children across a range of ages.
Learning to master big emotions and the associated skills of emotional regulation helps children to succeed not just in childhood but right through to adulthood. And you never know… in helping your child, you may just find a strategy or two to help yourself.
