We will talk about this questions in our classes in October. Then, each day we want our pupils to make an act of kindness without expecting a favour. You can collect the kindness behaviors written on a piece of paper in a jar in the classroom and talk about them.
Teacher asks what are positive features of humans? They make brainstorming together and write the results on the board. Each student will make their own positive cloud, picking from the ideas written on the board.
PROJECT 4 STORY STONES
Learn about emotions with story stones!
Kids has been struggling to put her emotions into words or express them in effective ways, because of this reason we can talk a lot about emotions and doing kids activities that center on learning emotions. Kids love to explore with simple hands-on activities so let’s put together this fun little variation on typical story stones.
Round up some rocks and give each one a facial feature. Kids can make eyes, noses, & mouths in different expressions and then set them out so they could create faces with them.
• Acrylic Paint
•A sheet of paper with “face” (oval) on it
Kids can create faces with the story stones and then take turns sharing them with the rest of us. We can talk about the emotions they created, explaining how we feel and how we act when we are feeling that way. It’s a great way to explore emotional intelligence in a way kids can connect with.
These could open a whole conversation about how they feel for each emotion created and how they can handle their bodies/feelings when experiencing said emotions.
“I cry when I’m sad. Waaaaahh."
“I run in my room by myself when I’m mad.” (makes angry face)
“I scream when surprised/scared.”
we can talking about the situations that caused these feelings.
We will make "Dream Jars".
Students will draw a jar and write about their dreams. Realias can be used as well. It is free to use imagination! :)
We will draw and paint our hands. We will decorate somewhere in the classroom with our hands. We are stronger together!
