Jameon's Closet is a story written to help children acknowledge and respect their feelings...even the hard ones. It uses humor and everyday life to gently and non-threateningly expose children to the importance of appropriately expressing feelings. The clever use of the closet as a metaphor addresses a familiar and common experience many children have when confronted with overwhelming feelings. The authors invite children to engage in a process of cleaning as they go, little by little, which lends hope to an otherwise large goal. As children, and adults alike, embrace the important message of Jameon's Closet, we can expect maturity and well-being for all.
This worksheet is perfect to use with students after the story to help them discuss and process their own feelings
