Feeling Buddies:

  • Feeling Buddies: Turn on My Thinking Brain

    To learn how to turn on your thinking brain by writing or drawing about emotional situations

     

    When we get lost in a feeling, we can’t hear its whisper message. Our thinking brains turn off and we may do or say hurtful things. We can only listen to the messages after we calm down. That is why they are called whisper messages. We have to be relaxed and calm to hear them.

    To turn on your thinking brain at the safe place you may choose to draw about what happened or write about it.

    Have children practice writing or drawing about a time their feelings got ahold of them. Allow share time if time permits.

    Sing Feeling Buddies Rap #7

Hope you all have a great week!!
