        Use Your Words | Daniel Tiger: Life's Little Lessons

        Both children and adults have plenty of times in their lives when they are flooded with emotions. We can all use practice in learning how to use words to separate our feelings from our actions.

        In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children learn to use words to express how they are feeling so others will understand how they feel and/or what they what.

        Watch the videos about Using Your Words and think about how you could use them as part of an activity or throughout the year as children learn how to express themselves when faced with frustration or challenges.

        Explore the topic of Using Your Words in your classroom using the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity.

        Share the Family Activity document with the families of your students, so they can continue the conversation at home.
