This daily feelings check in printable is great for kids to use to express and verbalize, or write, how they are feelings about their day.
All emotions and feelings are normal. This is what I tell my kids on the daily. However, when dealing with emotions and feelings, it’s important to understand a couple of things.
One, it’s critical for kids to understand and be able to verbalize how they are feeling. Two, it’s important to know what to do with those emotions.
This feelings check-in printable will help parents, caregivers or teachers understand how they children are feeling.

Using this feelings check in printable during the Covid-19 outbreak
If you are currently dealing with the Covid-19 global pandemic, it’s likely that your children are experiencing emotions about it too.
Their life and routine has likely been disrupted, and in our attempt to shelter them from how scary the situation is, they might not fully grasp or understand what is happening in the world. But, it will very likely affect their emotions and their feelings.
Use this feelings check-in printable as a way to gauge how your child is handling their experience with the global pandemic. Knowing how they are feeling can guide you to helping them in the way that they need.

This is a feelings check-in printable that is meant to be used year round, during these times, your child might not be in school or spending time with friends. But, these questions are still great to use to see how they are feeling about these times without each of these.
