Try It! I Notice, I Feel, I Can 

Teach and practice a three-step plan for managing big feelings.

Watch this video with children, then print this page for yourself. When children are calm, guide them to practice the three steps of “I Notice, I Feel, I Can” so they can recognize, understand, name, and manage their feelings: 

Step 1. I notice… Help children pause to notice the feelings they are feeling in their body. (For instance, when we feel frustrated, our hearts might beat faster.)  

Step 2. I feel… Help children name the feeling. 

Step 3. I can… Help children choose a strategy to manage their feeling, and then try it.
