Naming Feelings

August 15, 2018

 

 

Use the FEEL WHEEL Fun Sheet to teach kids the NAMES

of different feelings

 

 

 

WHAT IT IS

 

The FEEL WHEEL Fun Sheet contains the names of a variety of feelings and shows how those feelings relate to each other. For example, Yellow feelings, like happy, joyful, peaceful, loving and proud, are all similar to one another.

 

 

HOW TO USE IT


The FEEL WHEEL Fun Sheet is a simple tool for helping kids identify different feelings. It begins with the four basic feelings of happy, sad, scared and mad, shown in the centre of the Wheel, and builds to the outer rings of the Wheel and beyond.

 

 

The Fun Sheet works great as a map or a conversation starter

 

 

Just some of the many ways to use the Wheel include having kids:

 

 

Name their current feeling

 

Choose a feeling and tell a story about it

 

Pick a feeling and act it out

 

Choose a feeling and write about it

 

Select two feelings and talk about how they are similar and different

 

Share their most and least favourite and why

 

Choose the feeling they find the hardest or need the most help with

 

Add more rings to the Wheel as their feeling vocabularies grow
