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!

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
