Social and Emotional Support w/b 22nd Feb
Why read The Colour Monster?
Use this story to explore a range of emotions. It is ok to feel worried sometimes. Talking about your worries or sharing them with someone can help you to feel better.
After reading the book you could discuss:
- At the start of the story, the Colour Monster is feeling confused. When have you felt confused? What did you do in this situation? What can we do when we feel confused in the future?
- In this story, yellow refers to happiness, red is for anger and blue is linked to sadness. Do you agree with those colour choices? Why?
- Make a list of different emotions and think of times when you have experienced them.
- Think of other emotions and choose colours that might represent them (e.g. frustration, disgust, envy).
