What’s New This Week? – 24th September
We’re back in business and we’ve got some new, fun educational worksheets for you this week!
This month we had a little change of direction with the death of Queen Elizabeth II and decided to focus on bringing you free resources to help children process any thoughts and worries they had. But now we are now back on track with our upload schedule, bringing you seven new resources and activities. See what educational emotion resources we have for you this week below!
The Happy Llama – This feel-good activity encourages your child to think of all the things that make them happy, whether it’s people, places, food, hobbies – this task challenges them to think of everything that puts a smile on their face. How happy can they make our Llama? The more they write on the Llama’s neck, the happier he grows!
When I Make a Mistake I Can… – Part of facilitating a growth mindset and encouraging children to deal with unexpected challenges is helping them to realise that mistakes are part of life. Your child can use this checklist when they’ve made a mistake to help them think about their next steps and build their resilience. Remember, mistakes help the brain grow!
Create Your Own Emotion Chart – This blank emotion scale can be used in so many ways! Whether it’s having your child come up with their own scale that reflects the emotions they feel on a daily basis, or whether it’s a classroom activity to help children order their emotions from happy to angry and colour in accordingly.
My Glad, Sad and Mad Chart – What makes your child feel glad, sad and mad? Recognising triggers for our negative emotions can help us manage our thoughts and feelings more effectively. The chart scales up to red, with mad being the most intense emotion they can feel – it’s always helpful to think of ways to stay in the green!
Today I Feel… (Grief Focus) – This is a simple but effective grief resource to help grieving children track their emotions through each stage. Grief is a personal process and is different for everyone, this checklist can act as a way of bringing up and discussing any bothersome emotions or worries your child may have.
Describe the Monsters – Another fun emotion learning activity for young children. We want emotional learning and discussion to be a part of every day life, whether your child is learning colours or numbers, we love to think of ways that learning about emotions can easily slot into this learning process. This activity asks your child to describe the monsters using our given adjectives – which do they think is the smelly monster!?
Colouring Sheets for Older Children – We know that some older children think they’re ‘too old’ for colouring! But colouring is one of the most mindful activities you can do, and once you start, it’s easy to get into the swing of it! We have five new encouraging and positive statement colouring sheets to complete.
At the moment we are focusing on re-designing the Be Happy Hub and filtering our resources more effectively. This is to ensure that you continue to have the best, possible experience of finding and downloading resources to use as we grow. Please bear with us as we make changes, if there’s anything you’d like to know or ask – or any suggestions you may have – you can contact us on email@example.com.
New Resource Packs
We are still pressing ahead with our two new resource packs – our Confidence Pack and Trauma Pack – and these are due to launch in the next few weeks. We appreciate your patience as we continue to create and make resources.
With children back at school we’ve had a lot of requests over the last few weeks, we reply personally to each and every request and try to accommodate all requests in our upcoming upload plans. Please remember to feedback on our resources too, we love to know what you found the most fun, which resources worked best and of course, we love to see your stories and pictures!
