The Big Idea: Helping kids reflect on their feelings encourages them to share feelings with grown-ups.
- Print out “Feelings Tic-Tac-Toe” and read each box with children. Find a box with something kids have done today or can do right now. Once kids do the activity, put an “X” over that box. (Grown-ups can play, too: Put an “O” on any boxes that fit with your day.)
- At the end of the day, invite kids to put an “X” over any more boxes that say
what they’ve done or to do something in another box. Encourage them to try to get “tic-tac-toe” with three “X”s in a row. (They can keep trying tomorrow, too!) Once they get to three, they could even try filling the whole page.
