Early Start Identifies Feelings

This week the Early Start children were introduced to a new addition to the Quiet Centre in our classroom. The Early Starts were shown a feelings chart and together as a class, we worked through each emotion on the chart. This included stating the emotion and showing what it may look like and what might make us feel that way. We discussed if the emotion made us feel good or if it made us feel bad. The Early Starts practised some strategies using the basket of calming toys at the Quiet Centre to help vocalize what they were feeling and practise how to calm their bodies and turn it into a good feeling.
