Week 5: Day 1

This week...

Children will learn how to stay calm when they have a problem.

Activity

Children will be introduced to the “Breathe, Think, Do” strategy and review feeling words.

Use the Word Garden to review “happy” and “sad” words. Have children “pick” a flower, say the word, and do its pose.

Gather children in a circle. Hold the ball and tell a story about when you felt happy. Pass the ball to a child and have that child share an example. Take turns passing the ball. Then repeat with “sad” words.

Call-and-Response

Children will review the feeling words as they chant and move. As you say each line, prompt the children to repeat it after you.
Hold up the large pose pictures as they chant the feeling words.

When I have a problem,
I have feelings, too.
Sad.
But I’m happy I can solve it,
When I Breathe, Think, Do!
