This lesson was created to help students understand what happens when we have certain feelings, and to help identify them.
The cover can be used if you decide to make the pages into a booklet or class book.
Page one asks “Today I feel?” with six feelings, and six pages after describe what each of those feeling might look and feel like. The feelings are: exhausted, sad, embarrassed, excited, furious and happy.
Many children with diverse learning needs have extreme difficulty understanding ranges of emotion. Many use “happy”, “mad”, and “sad” to describe a variety of situations. Teaching feelings is difficult. They are abstract and it is not always easy to identify more subtle feelings in ourselves and others. Children often need very direct and explicit instruction in learning about different emotions. Providing visual supports to explain and show how we might look and feel; what we might do with our bodies, and what kinds of situations might cause ups to feel these ways can support learning for this important yet abstract skill.
