The My Feelings Math & Literacy Centers will give the children an opportunity to make decisions and choose the timing of their learning. It will help develop their fine-motor and visual discrimination skills and covers number and letter recognition.
My Feelings Literacy Centers
Center 1: Spin, Draw & Write
Cut out, laminate and assemble the spinner. Children take turns to spin the spinner. The ones that can’t write yet, will draw the emotion that the arrow lands on, on their recording sheet. The rest will draw the emotion as well as write the word. Continue until the recording sheet is completed.
Center 2: My Feelings Bingo
Bingo can be either played during circle time, or as a center game. Click on the images below to download the Spin, Draw & Write Center, My Feelings Bingo and the free set of Expression Cards.
My Feelings Math Centers
There are 3 rotatable My Feelings Themed Math Centers. Children will be able to do the Play Dough Mats and Snap-Cube Centers by themselves, which will be great to boost their confidence.
The teacher will need to assist them with the racing board game (which is a fantastic way to get them to talk about their feelings). The game can be played in pairs or in small groups. The children take turns to throw a dice and to move that many spaces on the board. They need to copy the expression they land on. When they land on a Feeling Card, they have to talk about the feeling on it.
