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:
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:
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!
