What educators are saying

I used this feelings check in frequently when students returned to school from distance learning. It was a great check-in tool. Thanks for an amazing resource!
I really enjoyed this visual. I keep it in my "calm corner", and the K kids I work with have been able to use it independently when taking a break.

Why Bother?

The first Social Emotional Learning (SEL) competency is self-awareness and it starts with students being able to identify how they feel. A daily feelings check-in helps students learn to recognize different emotions and also the intensity of emotions. We can't manage a feeling if we can't name it.

It normalizes feelings. We aren't always supposed to be happy or calm. Sometimes we are sad or jealous or angry. When we do daily feelings check-ins, we recognize that all feelings are okay. It then opens up the conversation that how we handle those feelings makes all the difference.

Feelings check-ins communicate that how everyone feels is important. And that as part of a community, someone is going to care how you feel. It's such a simple daily task to do that shows someone wants to listen and help.
