Emotions Color Wheel
UAB Arts In Medicine & ArtPlay: Summer of Health & Wellness Class! Using paper plates, construction paper, and markers (also glue sticks & scissors), we will create an emotion color wheel and construct weekly characters to represent each emotion. According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), who promote high-quality early learning for all young children birth through age 8, social-emotional learning is the key to every child's ability to manage feelings and to interact successfully with others. Intentionally prioritizing, teaching, and enhancing these skills with preschoolers and early learners result in happy, engaged children who learn to avoid and resolve conflicts, share and take turns, and express their emotions in productive ways. Valerie's Supplies: Eight paper plates, coloring markers or crayons (consisting of blue, pink, yellow, orange, red, gray, and black colors), one clothes pin. Optional: Tape and eight popsicle craft sticks
