The Way We Feel

With the beginning of the year and a number of new children starting, there has been a lot of different emotions from not only the children but also the parents so with the children we have been looking at emotions and our different feelings. To start with, educators painted ‘emoji’s’ on the doors, showing different types of feelings. After the children showed an interest in the different faces, this led to reading a number of different stories on our different feelings, including the children in the discussions of the feelings they felt and what made them feel this way. When asked what made the children happy some of the responses were, “my mum and dad”, “coming to preschool” and “playing with my toys”, when asked what made them feel cross or angry, the children said “I don’t like it when my brother takes my toys” or “when someone says mean things to me”. This has helped the children to have a strong sense of identity as well as increasing their knowledge of feelings and different things that make their peers feel different ways.
