Emotions: Happy, Sad, Angry!
Greetings, infant families!
This week we've talked about identifying the many emotions the daisies may experience throughout each day, children experience a wide range of feelings. Sometimes they experience them from hour to hour or even from minute to minute!
We had a great time introducing the babes to the activities planned for the week! During our daily circle time we brought visual aids out so that the daisies were able to explore and observe the wide range of facial expressions relating with that emotion such as; Happy, Sad, Anxious, Scared, Angry, and so on. We later created our very own emotions chart and discussed what scenarios could cause our friends to feel this way. We would ask a question and flip the chart to the "face" that corresponds to the question or statement. Another activity we worked on was, creating a birthday card for one of our friends in the pre-tot room! Making a special card for our friend Finn would make him feel happy. Later in the day the primary class shared some yummy watermelon slushies with us, we talked about how this made us feel excited!(only our older friends joined in on the slushes, we were being cautious about our younger friends enjoying this treat.)
we ended the week standing in front of the mirror and acting out various facial expressions, this was one of the babes favorite activity of the theme. Overall all it was a lovely week!
