Teaching emotional recognition to our preschoolers and kindergarteners is a necessary part of literacy and social development. Students can learn about emotions through simple cartoons featuring basic emotions. The latest in our series of emergent readers covers the basic emotions with a fall twist. Below you will see our fall scarecrow emergent reader in action!
Here are some teaching ideas for
our fall scarecrow emotions emergent reader:
- Have your students circle or highlight the feeling word for visual reinforcement.
- Then have students act out that emotion.
- Bridge a “text to self” connection by asking the kids to share an example of when they felt the way the scarecrow does on each particular page.
This emergent reader has repetitive text that helps build confidence with a beginning reader. It covers the sight word “the” and the common action word “feels” while teaching the basic emotional states. The emotional states covered are happy, sad, angry, sleepy, worried, silly, and scared.
