Emotional Intelligence 2.0 - Basic Introduction to Emotions
  • Ambar Paulino says:
    I incorporated this activity into one of my "All About Me" curriculum units (topic focusing on feelings and emotional intelligence). Fun-filled activity to get children to think creatively and exercise fine-motor skills!

    This resource is perfect for teachers who can't afford (time) to show the entire Disney Pixar film Inside Out. These 20 short clip provide an introduction to each of the major characters--feelings from the movie. I found that these were the perfect introduction to different lessons--kept students engaged, motivated, entertained, and wanting to learn/see more!

    A free downloadable ad-libs game that practitioners can use in the classroom with students learning about how to express different types of emotions.

    This YouTube video is a 35-minute compilation of nursery rhymes on each one of the major feelings: Happy, Sad, Greedy, Angry, etc. Nursery rhymes are relatively easy for teachers to memorize and recite/practice singing with children.

    A blog post published on the 'Little Miss Kindergarten' blog about books that are useful for classroom management/teaching young learners about emotional intelligence. The author of this article shares some tips on how she keeps her classroom under control and lists a number of new books that she recommends implementing into the curriculum. I strongly recommend: "Making Friends Is an Art!" by Julia Cook (Community Building) and "The Way I Act" (Learning about behaviors and choices).
