what am i feeling?

If You're Happy & You Know It! is a great song, but preschoolers are feeling much more than happy as they grow!

During this time of a preschooler’s life, there are increases in their thinking ability and continued organization of connections in the emotional area of their brain.

Here is a game you can play with them to help in this area. Act out an emotion or make a facial expression. Ask them to tell you how you look. For example: Ask, “Do I look sad or happy?” or “Do I look scared or surprised?”
