My Worry Thermometer
‘The Worry Thermometer’ has been designed to support children and young people with identifying their feelings and emotions on a scale.
Scaling a problem can help it to seem more manageable but also support the young person in tracking their progress and identifying triggers for their worries.
This resource features The Scribbles Crew, a group of friendly looking emotions characters that can be created by any child. They are just that: scribbles!
How could this resource be used?
- To support emotional regulation.
- To support emotional literacy and identifying different levels of worry.
- To support a child 1:1.
- To support all children as part of a classroom display.
