In this week’s episode of The Balanced Educator Podcast, we’re talking about how to teach children about emotions.
We talk about how empowering it is for children to understand that their thoughts create their emotions and that they have the ability to choose the thoughts that create the emotions they want to feel.
We share a guided mindfulness practice from our Mindfulness and Emotions unit in Educalme Classroom that you can do alone or with your kiddos. You will learn the 5 finger breathing strategy – a great tool to use when you are feeling a big emotion.
We talk about how to use stories and imagination to demonstrate to children how our thoughts make our bodies feel sensations and emotions.
