Everyday Speech Skill: Emotional Recognition

Lesson Plans to Teach Emotional Recognition Skills

Many students find it difficult to recognize, regulate and appropriately respond to the emotions of both themselves and others. While this life skill may come instinctively to some children, it can require teaching and guidance for others, including those who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Disability or other social and emotional needs. Increasingly, educators are discovering a need to teach social-emotional skills to all their students in a general education environment.

Emotional recognition is a crucial part of personal growth and building successful social relationships, making this skill a necessary part of education. Emotional recognition is a core skill in Everyday Speech’s SEL curriculum, which is designed to teach emotional recognition skills through video modeling and interactive games and activities.

Our Emotional Recognition Skills unit consists of multiple prepared lesson plans. Throughout the unit, students will learn tools for identifying emotions and interpreting facial expressions. They’ll also receive guidance on dealing with tough emotions and practicing positive self-talk to effectively control and change how they feel.
