Fuzzy Feeling Chair



We have a Fuzzy Feeling Chair in our classroom. Each day, a different student sits in this special chair. We take turns saying nice things about him/her. At the end of the activity, the student sitting in the Fuzzy Feeling Chair tells how he/she feels when others were saying nice things about him/her.

"Emotional Intelligence" is finding its way into school curricula. There's a need to be able to distinguish between what others say or do and personal reactions.

This activity helps kids get along well with one another. They can't wait their turn to sit in that chair and hear compliments about their good behavior or their appearance. They are trying to give at least five compliments a day and make a difference...it's just uplifting...


mrs. beydoun, you have a great way with words...
samar, many thanks for your comments on the blog

It is an uplifting activity ...It does develop their emotional intelligence when they describe how they feel ... it does develop their critical thinking as they issue compliments , evaluative statements ...blessed.
