|FAMILY|Feelings chart




Today I have a little activity to help children talk about and explore their feelings.


I saw this great 'how was your day' calendar and knew that I wanted to replicate it for T, this way he can draw a face to represent how his day was and we can talk through any anxieties he has.


At first we just practiced drawing different faces, this could be done as a one off task but I intend to do it everyday when he comes home from nursery, trying to open up lines of communication with him for when he starts school next year.  Of course at the moment, we know how his day has been, but I'm hoping he will soon develop a habit of talking to us about his day and it will become part of our daily routine.

  3. That is a great idea - it can be so difficult for children to talk about emotion and recognising the different feelings. I am sure it will help prepare him for school too. Thanks for sharing/hosting #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  7. This is such a great idea, I think it would be great for Archie's Autism when he's a little older & understands more #ToddlerApprovedTuesday

  8. This is a great idea :) I will be trying this with Monkey when he gets a little older, we use emotional clocks at the moment as his dexterity isn't really good enough but when it is we will be trying this. #toddlerapprovedtuesday x

  9. This is a great idea, I love that it helps him to talk more about how he's feeling each day. I'd like to try this with O, but imagine every day will just be a happy face if it's anything like his answers about what his 'favourite' thing each day/place etc. is, his answer is always 'everything'! :) x
