What is ONE thing teachers can do to introduce the concept that feelings are all OKAY?  

School Psychologist, & co-author of  70 Play Activities for Better Thinking, Self-Regulation, Learning and Behavior, Rebecca Comizio and I talk about using the “Name It, Claim It, Tame It” technique for identifying, recognizing and talking about feelings.

When Rebecca and I finished this video, we had a conversation about what teachers can do, on the spot, to transfer the skill of talking about and understanding feelings to children. Rebecca shows us the “Draw It Out” Technique. Easy to do in your classroom or office.

Grab the Name It, Claim It, Tame It activity from #BloomBrainsmarts to use in your work.

We develop research-based tools, activities, and strategies to improve children’s thinking, self-regulation, learning, and behavior by increasing their executive and social-emotional skill sets. 70 Play Activities (Kenney & Comizio, 2016) provides activities, worksheets, and strategies to teachers, school counselors, and school psychologists to help children learn new #EF and #SEL skills. Our goal is to change the trajectory of children’s learning with joy, empowerment, and respect.
