Managing my emotions

I can...


  • Express my wants and needs with words
  • Identify my own emotions
  • Manage my emotions with some help
  • Follow a predictable routine
  • Take turns
  • Share materials
  • Approach and join a group of children
  • Listen to others
  • Separate from mom and dad easily
  • Respect and care for others - recognize others' feelings, respect others' space, accept diversity

My parents help by...


  • Modeling the skills I need to manage my emotions - taking deep breaths, having time alone, staying calm
  • Playing games with me that require taking turns
  • Teaching me the names of my feelings
  • Giving me a consistent rountine
  • Giving me opportunities to play with other children my age
  • Giving me opportunities to go places with other adults to build my independence
  • Teaching me to respect personal space
