“Because experiencing emotions is so innate to us as humans, we often mistakenly assume that our self-awareness around feelings comes naturally. However, the truth is, like any other interpersonal skills crucial to social-emotional growth, learning how to identify and cope with emotions is a skill that needs to be encouraged and taught to humans at an early age…”—ThinkPsych.com
I created these large format bookmarks as a tool for checking in with there feelings throughout the week. These make fun bookmarks too so that they can be a reminder to check in with your feelings throughout the day. My favorite might be the Feelings Star Ratings that your kids can fill out and leave a review of their feelings and hopefully this acts as another way for kids to let you know what is going on inside.
