Core Freedom: Freedom To Feel Our Own Feelings
The sun is always there, regardless of the storms and weather we encounter. In many ways our mind is similar. We have the freedom to see our troubles as the clouds and weather that passes over the sun if we choose. The Smile In The Sky song provides a wonderful tool for students to discuss their emotions in a safe and non-judgmental way. Remember that you are not trying to fix or change students’ emotions but allowing them the safe space and creative materials to express how they are feeling. Students may enjoy watching the music video together before engaging in the activity. This will set the tone for the discussion and activity.
Students watch the Do You See A Smile In The Sky puppet skit video and explore their freedom to feel their own feelings through discussion and drawings of the weather.
