Teaching About Feelings

Emotional literacy skills develop over time and for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers are a “work in progress.” In fact, many of the challenging behaviors we see in young children are evidence of their developmental stages. In this session, we will explore what the development of emotional literacy looks like (labeling feelings in self and others, recognizing facial and physiological signs, modulating responses, developing coping strategies etc.) and share a variety of strategies teachers can use to support and teach young children in our care about feelings.
