Children’s Activity: What am I feeling?

What am I feeling?

A step of emotional literacy development is being able to recognise what our emotions are. In order to do this, we first need to consider their names and what they feel like. For children, this often starts with knowing what the facial imagery is that goes with each feeling. So, this week, we are sharing a simple worksheet to share with children to look at some initial feelings which we regularly experience.
