Product Description
This handout provides a way for young children to show the "little, Medium, and BIG" of a feeling. By showing the ranges of feelings kids learn emotional scaling and can begin to understand how they can use relaxation skills to make a "BIG" feeling start to become smaller and more manageable.
To complete this activity:
1) Pick a feeling you are wanting to scale and write it on the line. Example: Scared
2) Ask the child about a time they felt just a "little" scared. Write that even on the line next to the little face. Example: I felt a "little" scared when I met someone new.
3) Repeat the naming of an even for Medium and BIG feelings. Example: I felt "medium" scared when I had a nightmare and "BIG" scared when I lost my mom at the grocery store.
4) Have the child fill in the feeling face for what a "Little" "Medium" and "BIG" feeling looks like for the feeling being discussed.
5) Follow up the activity by discussing "How do you make a "BIG" feeling smaller? Are all "BIG" feelings bad? or good? What relaxation skills can you use if a bad feeling is too "BIG"? etc
Repeat for as many feelings as you want to discuss.
