Not all classes or kids want to talk about “Love” on Valentines Day. Try these positive and lively emotions instead: Amusement, Delight, Excitement, Happiness, Joy, and Pleasure.
An added benefit is the pictures are from around the world and all ages of people so kids can connect to something. It is also with the music, “Believe in you.” So a positive message is being sent out to everyone on this special occasion. I feel all children need to know more ’emotion words.’ Enjoy!
Share stories of Caring/Love
Each time a child describes an experience he has had, he constructs part of his past. This adds to his sense of who he is. Every story your child tells, or acts out through play, or writes contributes to a self-portrait.
I love to show teachers and parents how to use storytelling to strengthen their classrooms and their families. Did you know that being an expat puts in you a category that would make up the fifth largest nation in the world?
