I wish my teacher knew by Exciting Teacher

‘I wish my teacher knew…’ worksheet has been designed to support children and young people with identifying when they need support. It is a tool for building emotional literacy and allowing insight into thoughts and feelings for the adults who are supporting the children or young person.

Some children and young people find verbalising their emotions challenging. They might be reluctant to share but this is supportive of writing/drawing how they are feeling in that moment.

How could this resource be used?

  • To support teaching emotional literacy and identifying issues surrounding mental health and wellbeing.
  • To support a child 1:1.
  • To support a wider class ethos of talking and normalising mental health and wellbeing.
