Want to help your kindergarteners and first graders learn and differentiate about sad, angry, and worried feelings? This resource is a developmentally appropriate set of feelings activities to help them identify and express their own feelings of sadness, anger, and worry. It’s research-based social-emotional learning created specifically with primary students in mind.
Use these activities in one longer feeling sad/worried/angry lesson, one or two shorter lessons, or spread out in shorter bursts for a weeklong skills focus using the included pacing guide. Designed for teachers delivering SEL in their classrooms or school counselors teaching guidance lessons.
It is ASCA-aligned and CASEL-aligned! While created to use for whole group lessons, it is also wonderful for tier 2/small group counseling or social skills intervention.
