HOW AM I FEELING? ACTIVITIES
As the children are listening to this song, have them try to guess what I am feeling along with my daughter, Rebekah (Rebekah sings the child part in the song). I used my daughter for this song because from day one, and probably before, she has been
able to know what mood I am in from the tone of my voice. After the song has ended, pick a short phrase to say, and play a guessing game with the child using different tones in your voice. For example: "I'm going to the store" or "It's time for bed." Be as animated as you can be; it’s great if you add facial and body gestures since it is all connected to non-verbal language. In a group setting the same idea applies. One child can stand up in front of the group and let the other children guess if they sound angry, happy or sad. It is all right if a child does not want to participate, just let them observe the rest of the group. You can let the rest of the group know that if a child is quiet, perhaps they are letting us know that they are feeling shy.
