“Feelings and Emotions” Preschool Storytime

feelings

Opening Song
I wiggle my fingers. I wiggle my toes.
I wiggle my ears. I wiggle my nose.
I wiggle my shoulders. I wiggle my chin.
I stretch my arms wide and pull them back in.
I wiggle my elbows. I wiggle my knees.
I hop like a bunny. I smile and say, “Cheese!”
Now I have no more wiggles left in me
And I sit on the floor as still as can be.

Book – The Big Bear Hug – Nicholas Oldland
After this book, I explained that the bear calmed his anger by taking a deep breath. We then took a couple of deep breaths ourselves to calm us down.

If You’re Happy and You Know It
If you’re happy and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re happy and you know it,
your face will surely show it.
If you’re happy and you know it,
clap your hands.
If you’re angry and you know it, stomp your feet
It you’re sad and you know it, wipe your eyes (wipe tears away)
 If you’re scared and you know it, hide your face.

Boo Boo
One, two I’ve got a boo-boo
Three, four, oh, it’s sore!
Five, six, blow it a kiss
Seven, eight, put the bandage on straight
Nine, ten now it’s better again!

Faces with Emotions felt board

Goodbye
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as high as we can
Good-bye! (in high, squeaky voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as low as we can
Good-bye! (in a deep voice)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as fast as we can
Good-bye! (very quick)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as slow as we can
Good-bye! (very slowly and drawn out)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as quiet as we can
Good-bye! (in a whisper)
Bread and butter, marmalade and jam
Let’s say good-bye as loud as we can
GOOD-BYE! (yelling)

Early literacy tip: Modeling – Use a variety of strategies to give children examples of emotional intelligence in action: 
• Adult Behavior – Make sure that you model the kind of behavior and problem-solving skills you would like them to acquire. For example, when you make a mistake, admit it and then point to the possibility of improving in the future. “Oops, I spilled the water. I will mop it up and try to be more careful next time.”
• Role-Playing – Use dolls and puppets to act out situations to which children can relate and to show characters modeling positive behavior. You can have two puppets bumping into each other, with the more aggressive one saying, “I’m sorry,” and asking if the other is hurt.
