What are SEL resources? What a SEL activities?
SEL stands for Social Emotional Learning and is everything to do around emotional intelligence and helping children understand their feelings on the feelings of those around them better. There are 5 SEL Skills that school can focus on…
What are the 5 SEL Skills?
Teaching resources and activities tend to focus on the following 5 SEL Skills:
- Social Awareness
- Relationship Skills
- Responsible Decision-Making
Our emotions snowman his here to support the understanding of feelings better – recognising facial queues and how they help identify how we feel. It is a simple, but hopefully FUN and interactive SEL resources for either younger children learning about every day feelings or older children that struggle to connect facial expressions with feelings. OR are unable to communicate how they feel to their teachers and carers.
To make your Emotions Snowman, you will need:
- printable (it is free),
- pencil & coloring pens,
- scissors to cut out the flaps,
- glue to glue on the flaps.
How to make your own emotional snowman:
Start off by colouring in the snowman and its surroundings. Can you spot the little bunny?
Now it is time to help your snowman show its feelings! Then head over to the next template and colour in snowman’s faces. Can you tell what the snowman feels in each of the flaps?
Why do you think it feels sad or silly? Maybe it is pulling a face at the bunny?! Or is worried the snow will disappear?
I am sure you have many other feelings. Why don’t you show the snowman some of yours. Draw in some of your favourites or not so favourites into the empty flaps.
All that is left is to cut out the flaps, bend the little corner of the flap and glue it in the indicated place on the colouring page.
We hope you will enjoy colouring this snowman and bringing it to life with emotions. Do never feel afraid to speak about how you feel! We all feel and so often it is very hard to let others know how we feel. Often all we need is a hug! Go find yourself one now! ^_^
