Children have thoroughly enjoyed this book which explores and encourages children to ‘open up’ and discuss how they might be feeling today or in the past. We discussed each emotion and the link to a colour and thought of alternative words to describe each one.
This week: We read ‘The Colour Monster’ and ‘The Colour Monster Goes to School’. Children were able to relate and contribute their ideas and feelings of when they started school. Many of our activities were linked to these stories: roll the emotion dice and recall a time you felt this way, Monster collage, counting and matching counters to the Colour Monster, Colour Monster Spoons, paint your feelings and Colour Monster speech bubbles.
Next Week: Please click on the picture below to read the story.
