Emotional Literacy, with Niagara Children’s Centre
Emotional literacy is the ability to read emotions in themselves and others; to be able to identify, understand and respond to emotions in a healthy manner. As educators we can support children’s learning to label emotions and to develop valuable social emotional skills (compiled by Promoting Healthy Social Behaviours in Child Care Centres 2011). Shared book reading can support a child’s understanding of the “language” of emotions and support their understanding.
