"The Colour Monster"
This week in preschool we have been exploring feelings using the book the colour monster as it is a popular book from home, to start it off we made different colour playdough and used different resources to make our own colour monsters, we really enjoyed adding the different features to our monsters. We then did mind maps of the different feelings and what made us feel this way. We used our own writing skills to write our different experiences with these emotions.
We read the story and noticed the girl in the story helps the colour monster sort out their feelings into different feeling jars, so we did the same, we dyed spaghetti the different colours and used tongs to sort the different feelings into our feeling jars, whilst we explored the activities, we spoke different feelings as well such as jealousy and being overwhelmed with many feelings.
We enjoyed this experience and learned about the feelings of sharing our emotions with our adults and our friends especially when loads of us have many changes happening like new siblings, new homes and friends leaving for big school. to finish it off we drew our own colour monsters.
