This week, we learned about what happens when anger gets ahold of us. We realized that when we get bug crazy mad, we are not ourselves anymore and we are angry. We discussed several scenarios and put on the anger necklace to show how upset we get when angry. We then practiced several different breathing strategies to help calm us down when we feel that way, so we can become ourselves again. We talked about when we get bug crazy mad, it is hard to control ourselves and our actions which ends up with us being or saying hurtful things that we don’t mean. Using breathing/calming strategies help us to become caterpillar calm. The kiddos are doing a GREAT job learning how to manage their emotions.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
What a FABULOUS week in kindergarten we had this last week. We have made a lot of progress in learning how to rotate to our literacy stations as well as math stations. I feel so spoiled because the kiddos are so, very sweet and willing to practice anything I ask them to do. I am truly one blessed teacher. We will begin bringing home our book bags and reading logs this coming week! Here are some pictures from our week together. I hope you enjoy them!
Our applesauce recipe included apples, water, cinnamon and a little bit of sugar! It was delicious!
Thank you to our generous donor for funding our Feeling Buddies project! Our class has been borrowing the feeling buddies, and now we will have our very own class set! We are beyond excited.
The kiddos have loved learning about managing our feelings and emotions using the Feeling Buddies Toolkit! So far we have met and learned a little about each of our 8 Feeling Buddies: Happy, Sad, Angry, Scared, Calm, Disappointed, Frustrated and Anxious. This week we will learn about the difference between angry and frustrated. We will make a class book called: Our Feeling Faces. We will also act out scenarios and practice using our breathing strategies to help us go from bug crazy mad to caterpillar calm.
