Today we had a chat about emotions.  We need to teach the children to identify emotions on peoples faces in order to gauge how interactions are going.  WE used the DUPLO set to help the children identify emotions – they we each chose an emotion to build.  On each poster we had to identify why the face?  The children did a really good job.  We had a big talk about what makes us feel anxious.  We will follow up on the other emotions during the year.  Children need to learn strategies about how to deal with big emotions.
