When we teach emotional literacy, part of our role is supporting children to be able to recognise what their emotions are. Many children can find it challenging to be able to recognise, identify and respond to their emotions, particularly emotions such as excitement and anxiety as both create adrenaline in the body. A great first step, is to encourage children to reflect on their feelings and times when they remember feeling them, so that they can distinguish how they all vary. All children’s feelings are different, and so you may find that children have very different experiences or ideas about how their emotions affect them.
