This week we have talked about being the same and being different.
We often use a blob tree to reflect on our learning and understand our emotions.
This week, we used a blob tree to identify how we are all the same (the blobs are all the same, in the same community) but can feel different at different times, or in different situations.
What we did:
- Identify two blobs that represent them and how they feel
- Explain the feelings to a partner
- Share our blobs with our peers
- Appreciate the feelings of others
Importantly, children noticed how they almost all had selected different blobs. If children had chosen the same blob, they loved telling each other why.
The blob tree is a powerful learning tool to help children understand their feelings.
