‘Data shows that children who are systematically taught social and emotional skills like how to manage their distressing emotions better, empathize and collaborate do better: have fewer problems such as substance abuse and violence, like school more and pay more attention in class—and score significantly better (11%, on average) on academic achievement test scores.’(Goleman, 2008, p. 1)
I was always passionate about teaching children to understand their emotions and being empathetic towards others. It drew me to create this teaching resource.
– Sorting activity with 8 different feelings/emotions (happy, shy, loved, curious, worried, sad, lonely, and scared). Children are encouraged to match pictures to particular feelings/emotions.
– Emotions Montessori 3-Part Cards with 8 different emotions: happy, sad, excited, tired, worried, scared, surprised, angry. It also encourages children to guess the reasoning behind feelings. Children are encouraged to name familiar emotions and learn to recognize familiar words.
– Printable for children: “My Emotions Book”. Children reflect on their learning by naming and drawing emotions on faces.
