About this resource:

This is an interactive resource designed to help children get in tune with their emotions and develop their emotional literacy. The activity involves creating a personalised emotion scale that reflects the range of emotions and associated colours. This resource encourages self-reflection, exploration, and creative expression.

Key Features and Benefits:

• Emotional Literacy: The resource promotes emotional literacy by encouraging children to identify, label, and order their emotions. It helps them develop a vocabulary to express and understand their feelings more effectively.
• Personalisation: The blank emotion scale allows for individual expression. Children have the freedom to create a scale that resonates with their unique emotions and experiences, fostering a sense of ownership and self-awareness.
• Mindful Exploration: Through the activity, children engage in mindful exploration of their emotions. They become more attuned to their feelings and develop a deeper understanding of the different emotions they experience.
• Creative Expression: The resource incorporates colouring, allowing children to express their emotions visually. By using colours to represent different emotions, children can enhance their understanding and engagement with their emotional experiences.
• Emotional Development: Creating an emotion scale empowers children to take an active role in their emotional development. It encourages reflection, self-expression, and the ability to identify and manage emotions in a healthy way.
• Self-Awareness: Encourages self-reflection and self-awareness, helping children become more in tune with their emotional experiences.

Suitable for classroom settings, the activity can facilitate discussions about emotions and create a sense of emotional awareness and inclusivity among students.
