What is the theory behind the Emotional Thermometer Worksheet?

An emotional thermometer is used to let children express and indicate what emotions they are feeling and to what extent. It is particularly helpful for young kids who are having difficulty putting their emotions into words and also those who have just begun to learn emotional identification and  regulation skills. 

How will the worksheet help? 

This worksheet will provide a simple template of an emotion thermometer that therapists or counsellors can use with young clients to help them name their emotions. This worksheet can also be helpful for parents and teachers to reinforce what the kids learn in sessions at both home and school. 

How to use the worksheet? 

Instruct the child to first name the emotion they are experiencing. Help them understand that the red part indicates highest intensity while the blue part  indicates lowest intensity  They can mark the area on the thermometer to indicate how strongly they are feeling this emotion.
