Every morning, as part of our morning routine, our students read the morning and sign in. One day last week, as part of our sign in, we asked the kids “How are you feeling?” Most of then wrote “happy” and some wrote a body based feeling like feeling like “tired.”
In kindergarten, our students do a lot of social-emotional learning focusing on feelings. We clearly needed to do a review, so we read How Are You Peeling? Foods with Moods, by Saxton Freymann. After, we created a chart of feelings mentioned in the book, but we left room in our chart so we could add feelings as we discovered them in different books throughout the week.
