Children will learn who is in their circle of care.
Use the Word Gardens from previous lessons to review “disappointed,” “mad,” and “ecstatic” words. Have children “pick” flowers, say the words, and do the poses.
Gather the children in a circle. Hold the ball and tell a story about when you felt disappointed. Pass the ball to a child and have that child share an example. Take turns passing the ball.
Children will review the feeling words in a chant. 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.
But I’m ecstatic I can solve it,
When I Breathe, Think, Do!
