Teaching Kids a Simple Way to Express Their Feelings (Teaching Tip #101)

Written by
In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features a simple strategy that children can use to express how they are feeling at any given time. I have used this idea as part of my classroom’s morning routing every day of my teaching career. The strategy is a variation of one described in Jeanne Gibbs’ wonderful book, Tribes. Give this idea a try in class with your students or at home with your children.
Several months ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the “Teaching Kids” channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' " Each of my “Teaching Kids” videos features 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and addresses a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.

If you are interested in being notified anytime I upload a new video, please add yourself as a subscriber to my channel. If you have any suggestions or requests for new videos, please feel free to contact me.
