    Some ways to help children recognize big emotions are reading books, singing songs, and talking through them with a trusted adult.

    always communicate, ask the child how they are feeling, why they feel that way, what we can do make them feel better or works towards feeling better.

    some of the best ways to help children recognize their emotions and
    control their responses is by letting them speak and express their
    emotions, often times kids need to let their feelings out in order to
    help us as the caregiver understand them and once we do we’ll be able to
    help them.

    It’s important to teach children how to identify and label their emotions. One way of doing this is by teaching emotional vocabulary and doing emotional regulation activities with all of the children.

    Let the children express their feelings without judgment. Welcome them with open arms. Once they trust you, they will open up to you and they will look up to

    I think letting them speak/act out their emotions or show how they are feeling if they cannot communicate it is a good way to help them recognize their emotions

    Use a feelings chart. You can use this at the beginning of the day and bringing it back throughout the day as emotions may change.

    Complete a body check, asking children how different parts of their body feels, and sharing observations with the child so they can learn to identify different body reactions to different emotions.

    Have children engage in a variety of gross motor activities that allow them to physically explore the environment and get energy out to help them calm down.

    Allowing kids to let you know how they are feeling is very important. Making sure that they understand that you see they are feeling a curtain way, and you’re ready to help them through it. Even deep breathing for children is great
