This emotional wheel helps teachers to understand that if any given scenario arises then it will ultimately cause a certain feeling if not curtailed.

It’s a great reference point for your classroom.

Lessons that start in the yellow, green or blue section are to be encouraged, as we all want relaxed, peaceful or empowered children.

Where are situations that end in the orange, red or pink sections will ultimately leave our children feeling, upset, angry or sad. And this is something nobody wants.

Whilst planning and preparing lessons, think carefully about the emotional effect, the lesson will have upon those involved. If we can tap into the emotions of our students and be aware of factors that can change the path of our students, then learning will come naturally.

Great resource, worth sharing. ❤️
