The lesson “Emotional Regulation Through Self-Talk” teaches children how to distinguish between thoughts that make them sad and those that make them feel better, and how to develop more thoughts to facilitate happiness. Emphasis is placed on learning to recognize that word ‘always’ and ‘never’ lead to negative thoughts and feelings, and strategies to rework thoughts through self-talk are taught. The lesson includes guided instructions for the teacher, including preparation, a script, and suggested activities to facilitate further learning in a fun and interactive manner. This lesson is designed for children between 6-8 years, and is the 43rd lesson in the 1st Year Core Curriculum Set and part of the “Emotional Development” unit.
