Feeling Puppets

We Feel Happy!
Thank you to our friend Gladys who cut and sewed 190 puppets for our Soar in 4 classrooms. These feeling puppets will be used in our early learning classrooms to help the students identify how they are feeling and how to self regulate.  Identifying feelings is a skill. These puppets will help us learn the difference between feeling an emotion and becoming it.  When we are an emotion we react without thought but when we learn to identify and label a feeling we can consciously make a choice to separate ourselves from that feeling and learn how to regulate ourselves. Our Feeling Puppets will be used in each early learning classroom’s Safe Place. Thank you Gladys for helping our school families to create a positive classroom climate while eliminating bullying and decreasing behavioral issues. Gladys we wish you well!
