Teach Pre-K Students to Be Honest About Their Feelings: SEL

This lesson opens with a story titled "How Do You Really Feel?" It is a story of self-honesty by being truthful about one’s feelings. It begins with Kayla and Mai feeling hungry. Mai looks for something to eat when suddenly, Mr. Jazzman drops by to give the two girls a snack. Kayla accidentally finishes the snack while Mai is gone. When Mai returns and learns this, she feels upset, and Kayla feels bad for not sharing the snack with her. The story ends without the two girls being honest about their feelings.

"This lesson aims to help pre-kindergartners learn to practice self-honesty by being honest about their feelings."

While the visual aids of "Kayla," “Mai,” and “Mr. Jazzman” are displayed, a class discussion takes place. Here, the teacher explains the importance of telling the truth about their feelings. Then, an SEL activity follows, where the students practice telling the truth about their emotions and actions.

Finally, pre-kindergartners learn another finger play and recite a clap about self-honesty. The lesson ends with the students receiving recognition for their positive actions through the ICU messages from the ICU box.

This lesson aims to help pre-kindergartners learn to practice self-honesty by being honest about their feelings. Acknowledging and naming their feelings can help them communicate better with their family and friends. As a result, they are able to manage their feelings better, receive emotional support, and strengthen their relationships. This, in turn, improves their mental health and boosts their self-concept.
