Glad Monster, Sad Monster

Next week for Large Group we are going to be focusing on emotions!  We will be reading the book, "Glad Monster, Sad Monster" by Ed Emberley & Anne Miranda.  Here is our learning card:

This handout is a great one from Head Start/The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning.  It's a little longer than our usual ones, but it really gives some simple, straightforward steps you can do when trying to teach emotions to your child.  It also has some great ways to help children begin to label their own emotions!
