Emotional Pumpkins

1. Click on the link to watch the video. 2. Click on the link to watch again and try to repeat the words with the video. 3. Click on the add button. 4. Tell me how You feel today and why. You can draw it with the drawing, record it with the mic or make a video with the video. 5. Click on the green check to add your response to your journal. Simplify: * On the second viewing of the video, you say the words with or for your child. * If they don't have the attention span for the second viewing, skip that step. (This is pretty fun, hopefully they will!) * If your child is not able to express emotions and explain why yet, tell them how you feel and why. Make it fun! Extend: * With your support, see if your child can come up with another emotion and what the pumpkins would do if they felt that way. Help them sing the new verse they created. Example: "5 little pumpkins clapping, clapping. 5 little pumpkins are 'excited'!" * Have your child use more than one method for telling how they feel and why. For example, draw a picture and then explain their drawing on a video. * Do the activity again another time and talk about if their emotions/feelings have changed and why. Learning Potentials (Core Standards): Recognize that feelings can change and different feelings are experienced throughout the day. With prompting and support, express, identify, and label emotions (for example, happy, sad, angry, afraid) and feelings (for example, thirsty, hungry, hot, cold, tired). With prompting and support, develop and practice self-control by regulating one’s own impulses and feelings, following simple directions, waiting for turns, transitioning between activities, and complying with limitations.
