I really liked the way Ms. Hawkings made it a point to recognize everyone's feelings and to talk to each student about their feelings. She had visuals there for students to pick their emotions. She walked around the classroom and spent time with eveyone. She made them all feel special. She engagied the students with her story telling getting them to guess numbers and colors. Pre-school is a tough age but she did a great job keeping them engaged.

I really enjoyed the way Ms. Hawkins made a point to recognize and understand her students feelings. Having a visual representation of their emotions helps students understand what the emotions look like. Also having Ms. Hawkins ask them questions to get them to describe to her how and why they feel that way is great practice for them to learn the characteristics of emotions.

I love that you give your students a choice on their emotion. Not only are they learning the differences between emotions but they are learning that it is okay to not always be happy. Thank you for creating an enviorment where they feel safe to express their emotions. Side note-I would not mention things like "missing their mom" unless they say it first because it can cause them to rmeber that emotion that they have already moved past. Keep up the great work!

As I have just begun teaching Kindergarten I have come to realize how important it is for not only myself to understand my student's emotions but also for them to understand and be able to express their feelings. I really like this simple idea (might even turn it into a pocket chart), as a check in with students throughout the day. I have one little boy this year that has a pattern of getting emotional at certain times of the day and it took me a long time to realize this. He has yet to figure out this pattern but if he physically chose his mood he may see the pattern too and believe me when I offer him a 'break' prior to his meltdown times. This may not have directly related to any of the sessions I took at the conference, but it indirectly relates to everything I do EVERYDAY. Validating student's emotions and respecting that they aren't always happy/excited is a good place to start. I get so busy in my day that I often forget simple things like checking in with my students. Their emotional wellbeing has a great impact on their academic success and this video reminded me of that.
