The children in year 1 are brilliant at identifying whether they are feeling "happy" or "sad" but often find other emotions difficult to describe or identify. The Colour Monster book introduces them to feelings of anger, being scared, feeling calm and feeling loved. Listen to the story then play the emotions board game below. The board game introduces some more difficult emotions such as embarrassed , confused or worried. If they are not able to think of a time when they have felt like this then you could help them with your own example or use an example from a story that you have read together.
