How am I Feeling? Feelings Chart Pick one... Sad Angry Happy Scared Tired
Sunnyside Daycare Playground
I'm glad to have you back with us, Noah! Thank you for participating in our Chill Out Zone. Is there anything you think you should say to Jacob?
It's okay, let's play!
Jacob, I'm sorry. Can we take turns?
During recess time at Sunnyside Daycare, Noah and his friend Jacob begin arguing over who should use the sandbox shovel first. Feeling frustrated, Noah pinches Jacob. Upon hearing Jacob crying, Ms. Jane, the teacher, makes her way over.
Noah admits to pinching Jacob but refuses to apologize, claiming he is "angry like a volcano!" Ms.Jane asks Noah if it would help him to visit the Chill-Out Zone. Noah refuses to go at first until Ms. Jane walks him over and reminds him of the new toys added to the comfort box. After several minutes of sitting in the reflection chair, Noah has calmed down and begun to rethink his actions.
After some time in the Chill Out Zone, Noah has calmed down and returns to the playground. Ms. Jane welcomes him back with a smile and motions for him to rejoin the sandbox. She thanks Noah for participating in reflection time and helps the students make up. She also reminds them the importance of using words not fists to express emotions and suggests several ways they can take turns in the future.
