Today's topic was "feelings". This theme is particularly important, especially nowadays when everybody feels the effects of the ongoing situation in the World and lots of changes in their lifestyles. Children are extremely sensitive and even though they might not say it, they can be stressed out.
We have learned the names of different feelings in German with the help of flash cards, then we listened to a song about feelings, completed some exercises (depending on the level of German of the children and if they can read and write I vary the exercises), we played a game, and made a stress ball out of a balloon and some flour. Super easy, so much fun!
The children could choose what facial expressions they wanted to draw onto their stress balls. Everybody had lots of fun and the stress balls we made will help them also in the future, to release some of their negative feelings.
