Teach Your Child About Feelings And Emotions! FREE Song And Printable Worksheet!

Today’s lesson is on feelings and emotions.

When I first taught feelings and emotions to preschoolers, I did not know that it would go on to be one of my all-time favorite lessons.

But, it did!

What happened was when I got to the end of the lesson and I asked the children to tell me about a time when they were happy, a time when they were mad, a time when they were sad, etc… some of the stories that
would come out of their mouth could compare to Art Linkletter’s Kid’s Say The Darnedest Things.

I mean no one was safe in their family.

Stories would include brothers, sisters, mother, fathers, grandparents….

It was hilarious.

If you have a young one at home, you can appreciate what I mean.

So, let’s get to the lesson.

The feelings and emotions I like to teach to preschoolers are:

  1. happy
  2. sad
  3. mad
  4. confused
  5. shy
  6. lonely
  7. scared
  8. loved

I’m now teaching feelings and emotions to my daughter.


She is a preschooler.


I like to start my lessons with a song.


Songs are great because:

  • it introduces the lesson theme
  • it puts children at ease
  • it helps teachers and parents teach
  • and, best of all, children have fun learning with music!

For this lesson, I like to play the song, If You’re Happy And You Know It.


I like this song because it introduces the children to body cues that can help them identify feelings in themselves and others.


Come give a listen at kids learn @ kiboomu daily and check out all the printable activities that go along with the song!
