Detecting my emotions
Teacher Yu led the lower-grade students to detect the “emotional monsters” hidden in their hearts by reading the picture book, “My Emotional Monster”.
Students in our upper grade levels shared their methods of coping with emotions. They preferred positive emotions like ‘happy’ and ‘calm’ and wanted to get rid of negative emotions like ‘sad’, ‘angry’ and ‘scared’.
A comprehensive view of ‘bad’ emotions
So, how would our lives change without these negative emotions? Students in the lower grade levels let their imaginations run wild, while students in the upper grade levels explored these emotions through a debate.
So, how do we read the messages our emotions send us and live in peace with ‘bad’ emotions? Thinking of our body as a ‘house’ and bad emotions as potential ‘guests’ in our home, how should we welcome these unwanted guests?
Let’s hope that we can carefully understand the feeling of each emotional ‘guest’ when it arrives, stay with it calmly, listen quietly to what it wants to say, and understand its needs. We can be its friend, comfort it, care for it, and support it!
The students all expressed that they learned a lot from the Emotions Magic School and hoped to continue to explore more magic to decrypt emotions through future psychology lectures. Let’s meet again after the next magic class of emotions!
