PreK3 Students Develop Emotional Vocabulary in "Our Feelings" Unit

February 10, 2019

As an IB school, our Early Childhood program fosters inquiry and investigation across disciplines, and fundamental part of social/emotional development for young children is awareness and understanding of their own feelings and the feelings of others. This helps create a sense of belonging, foster friendships, and provide children with the tools they need to navigate the social context of school and beyond. 

This month, PreK 3 students are studying "Our Feelings," learning to identify and put a word to the many feelings we have and experience every day as well as developing an understanding of empathy and the act of "putting yourself in someone else's shoes". During this unit, students have had many opportunities to express how they are feeling to expand their emotional vocabulary. Every day when students enter the classroom they are invited to express how they are feeling on a "How are you feeling today?" chart. The classes are also exploring feelings through books including the "Grouchy Lady Bug" by Eric Carl, and practicing fine motor skills by cutting circles for their ladybugs and making grouchy faces to practice emotional expression.
