Emotional Literacy

Emotional literacy is our empathy habit for October. Learning to recognise the feelings and needs both of ourselves and others through our words, actions, facial expressions, tone of voice and body language is the first step in developing empathy towards others. Children need to develop a “feelings vocabulary” to enable them to share and talk about their feelings. It is essential to growing into a caring and kind person to recognise that as human beings we all have the range of emotions.
