Resource Info

Help your child ‘tune into their feelings’ with this interactive resource. Can your child use our emotion piano to tell you how they feel? All the need to do is tap the key that best represents their mood.

About this resource

This is an engaging emotion literacy resource designed for early years and KS1 children and children with varying needs. This activity incorporates a music-themed approach to help younger children identify and express their emotions with the use of our emotion piano!

Children are encouraged to tap the keys, metaphorically representing different emotions, as a way to explore and communicate their feelings. By associating specific keys with different emotions, children can develop their emotional awareness and begin to understand and articulate their own emotional experiences.

This resource is particularly valuable for early childhood development, as it lays the foundation for emotional literacy skills. By providing a playful and interactive way to engage with emotions, children can start building their vocabulary and understanding of various feelings. This process helps them develop self-awareness and the ability to express their emotions in a healthy and constructive manner.

The music-themed approach adds an element of fun and creativity to the activity, making it more appealing and accessible to young children. It stimulates their senses and encourages their active participation, fostering an enjoyable and engaging learning experience.

Tune into my Feelings is a versatile resource that can be utilised by parents, professionals, and teachers alike. It can be incorporated into daily routines, classroom activities, or therapy sessions to support children's emotional development and enhance their communication skills.

This resource is particularly beneficial for children with diverse needs, such as those with ADHD or autism, as it offers a structured and interactive way to engage with emotions and visually communicate how they are feeling. It can also serve as a helpful tool for parents and caregivers in fostering open conversations about feelings and creating a supportive and nurturing environment.

This resource supports emotional development, encourages self-expression, and lays the groundwork for healthy emotional literacy skills. It is a valuable resource for parents, professionals, and teachers seeking to foster emotional awareness and communication in young children.
