Post-it® Collaboration Week: Saturday’s Feelings Chart

CKS_Blog_DTOP_BelowTitle

Recognizing and naming feelings is part of a child’s social and emotional development. Here’s an activity you can use to help your child start to understand and identify emotions. You can even use it to talk together about how to express feelings in positive ways.

What you’ll need:

1 – 22″ x 22″ Post-it® Big Pad
1 pack of 3″ x 3″ Post-it® Super Sticky Notes, any color
1 marker

What to do:
1. Pull out a page of the Post-it® Big Pad and write “How [insert your child’s name] feels right now” at the top.

3. Start drawing faces that reflect different emotions on the Post-it® Super Sticky Notes. Talk together about different feelings people experience, and what each feeling looks like.
