Sing It Out
Express feelings with Elmo through singing and music.
Watch this video together. Then take turns singing out your emotions to “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” (for instance, “I am feeling really sad/glad/mad”). The next time kids are having big feelings, encourage them to try singing them out. Kids, especially younger kids, don’t even have to use words to express their feelings. How about banging on a drum, or just singing “la la la” in different ways (angry, sad, excited, and so on)?
