Learning about the feelings!!

Hello families and friends!

I’m sure you have heard talk about the faces and what their names are: Mr. Happy, Mr. Sad, Mr. Angry, Mr. Sleepy and Mr. Hungry.

We have learned about what are the feelings they show us and what are the colors that they represent. We associate each color to a feeling or an action and we show this feeling with a different sign each one. Do you want to learn more? Keep reading!

Mr. Happy is color yellow; we represent this feeling with a big smile. Mr. Sad is color blue; we imitate this face pretending we are crying. Mr. Angry is color red, when we talk about him we cross our arms. Color purple is for Mr. Sleepy, we just lay down on the floor or we put our hands next to our face to show that “we are sleeping”. The last one is Mr. Hungry in color orange; we make the gesture of eating saying “ñam, ñam, ñam”.

When somebody is sad or angry in the classroom I use that to show a clear example of what this feeling is and to put a name on it. Then I ask them what can we do to be happy and I give them some examples of things that help us on this. For example a big kiss from a friend, a hug or just to listen to what happened and let them know that everything is going to be all right.

Now… do you think do we know how to imitate them?
