Feelings and Emotions

Every morning during circle time, we talk about feelings – how we are feeling at that moment, what makes us feel happy/sad/angry and why, or what we do to make others feel happy/sad/angry/etc.

We have a song about feelings – another one from Super Simple Learning – that we modified a little bit. It’s called “Can You Make a Happy Face” and these are our lyrics:

Can you make a happy face,
happy face, happy face,
Can you make a happy face,
My dear children?

We’ve used ice cream stick puppets (see photos below) to learn the words. Sometimes we also play “The Happy Face Game”, where we hide flashcards with feelings in the classroom and after singing, the kids look for them. There are tons of ideas on feelings and emotions…these are just a few of our favourites.
