Learning about feelings can help children identify and name their emotions. Throughout each day, children experience a wide range of feelings. Sometimes they experience them from hour to hour or sometimes from minute to minute! Children need to understand how to label their emotions as well as how to react to their and others emotions.
Young children surprisingly have a good understanding of emotions such as happy, sad or mad. However, some emotions such as anger, jealousy, worried, and shy are more difficult to maneuver through. Children can begin to learn through discussion, materials, and adult modeling, some effective ways to work through their feelings.
