As the Toddler 2 children continue to grow and mature, they have begun to explore feelings and emotions in a more articulate way.  Recognizing and naming emotions is an important first step toward helping young children manage their feelings. During an emotional episode, simply identifying a child’s feeling as “angry,” “sad” or "frustrated” can often help them to calm down and begin to control the emotion.  A new piece of work helps the students to practice identifying common emotions.  A series of picture cards displaying happy, sad, angry, silly and other faces is set out with a small mirror.  When a child chooses the work, he or she identifies the feeling on the card and practices making the same face in the mirror.  This activity often leads to discussions about what makes us feel certain things and how we can behave when we encounter difficult feelings.
