The lesson “Emotional Modulation Through Self Talk” teaches children about the importance of social and self-awareness, including feelings and reactions based on developing Godly character. Children are able to demonstrate and understanding of strong emotions of anger and fear by relating them to a strong wind. The children will then be able to verbalize happy thoughts to combat the strong wind by creating calm. Suggestions for happy thoughts are given, such as “I can do lots of good things,” to help each child develop one or two that works best for him or her. 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 3-5 years, and is the 40th lesson in the 1st Year Core Curriculum Set and part of the “Emotional Development” unit.
