This week, we are continuing our work recognizing and responding to feelings in our bodies. We are talking about the feeling "frustrated," and are brainstorming times at school when students might feel this way.
As part of this lesson, students are being given the opportunity to practice naming their feeling. They are using the following phrase:
Stop! I feel ___________.
This phrase encourages them to check in and name the feeling they are experiencing. This is an important first step to recognizing when they are experiencing a big feeling, and to begin to consider strategies to feel better.
You can practice this strategy at home. When your child is upset, encourage them to practice naming their feeling using the phrase "Stop, I feel ___________."
Thank you for supporting this important lesson.
