Children will review "mad" words with a circle time game.
In this activity, you will use the feeling box to discuss “mad” words.
Gather children into a circle. Remind them of the box and the pictures they drew the previous day.
Pick a drawing from the box and show it to the children. Invite the child who drew the picture to talk about it. Ask other children to talk about their pictures, too.
At the end, have the children stand up. Say the word “mad” as you do the pose. Have the children take turns each saying the word and doing the pose. Repeat with “frustrated” and “furious”.
Suggest strategies for coping with mad feelings, such as taking a deep breath, talking to an adult, or thinking of a happy memory.
