Emotions Unit April 11-15

 The Cub Cadets are getting in touch with our emotions and feelings this week. We will be exploring a variety of emotions.  We will be reading a variety of books that explore how we feel in various situations.  We will role play and discuss how we feel in different situations(ie, when someone takes a toy, when a friend shares with us, when a friend falls and gets hurt).

The Bravest Fish
Glad Monster Sad Monster
Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?
Silly Sally
My Mouth is a Volcano

Small Groups:
-Feelings Bingo- Children will have a bingo board with different feelings on them.  A picture of a child in a situation will be shown to the group and we will discuss what the feeling is. Then they will find the matching emotion on their bingo board.
-Sorting Emotions- We will take pictures of the children and ask them to make a happy, sad, or angry face.  The pictures will be printed for each child to sort. They will sort the pictures by emotion then create a chart.
-Feelings Journal Book- Each child will create their own feeling book and decribe when they are happy, sad, and angry.
-Patterning Emotions- Children will create a pattern strip in an AB, ABC, or ABB pattern.
