Learning about emotions and self-regulation

Self-regulation is a huge part of kindergarten. It is important for children to talk about their feelings to better learn how to regulate their emotions and deal with difficult situations. We began by conducting a "feelings circle."

We discussed how our face changes when we feel different emotions. Drawing different emotions: what does our face look like when we are happy, sad, scared or upset?

Graphing our feelings in French with Mme. Lepage. 

Some of us decided to make our own feelings emoji's at the art table, very creative!

Learning different strategies to calm our bodies when sad, anxious, upset or excited. 

Here are some of the books we have been reading as a class.
