Emotional Functioning: Video 3
Teacher: [Gasps] Oh. I have a sad friend. Argus said he is sad. Let's look at Argus' face. Does Argus look sad?
Boy: No, he looks really happy.
Teacher: I think he looks pretty happy. Do you think we can move Argus in the "pretty happy" bucket?
Girl: Yeah. Teacher: Yeah. I think so. Maybe he just put it in the wrong bucket. Let's see. Let's see who else we have. We have a lot of happy friends. Let's see how many happy friends we have. One, two, three, four, five. Six happy friends.
Boy: And let's count how many mad friends.
Teacher: Well, let's see. Oh. Oh, I have tired friends in this classroom? Two tired friends? My two tired friends are right here. Are you really that tired? Let's see. Can we help Riley and Torin? What can they do if they are that tired?
Addison: Maybe we can make funny faces!
Teacher: Maybe you can make a funny face and make them feel better. What do you think? Funny faces?
Teacher: No. You say no. What else can we do? Let's think. Addison: Maybe we can make another project.
Teacher: Maybe we could make another project! Whoa. Look at that. You made Torin become happy. What about my friend Riley? Oh, Riley's happy, too. Kiss your brain, Addison. That was awesome. Nice thinking. Oh, no. Now I have...
Boy: Three mad friends.
Teacher: I have the angry friends. Let's see if we can help... Addison: Maybe we can...
Teacher: Well, let's see why they're angry.
Jonah. Jonah is angry. Why are you angry, Jonah? Look at that angry face he has. What's going on? Do you want to tell us?
Jonah: My mommy makes me mad. Teacher: Uh-oh. Mommy made him... Addison: Maybe we can make funny faces.
Teacher: What about Addison saying maybe we can make funny faces so you get better? Is it gonna work? No. Mm. Let's think of something else.
Girl: Another song.
Addison: Maybe we can make jewelry.
Teacher: Sing a song? We can sing a song for you. Will that make you happy? We can sing a song? No. He said no.
Addison: Maybe we can make a picture, a painting.
Teacher: A picture for you. We can paint a picture for you. No? Allison: Want to hear a joke?
Teacher: Oh, look. Allison has a joke. Is a joke gonna make you happy? What do you think is gonna make you happy?
Addison: Hey, Jonah. Knock knock.
Teacher: Uh-oh. We have a joke. A joke here. There's a joke on the way. Let's say, "Knock knock." No? He says, "I don't want a joke." Tell them. Say, "I don't want a joke."
Girl: Knock knock.
Teacher: Use your words.
Addison: A trumpet.
Teacher: A trumpet? That was a good trumpet. You know what makes me happy sometimes? If I just breathe through my nose, make my belly really big, and then I blow it out from my mouth like this...[Inhales deeply] And then I blow it out like this... [Exhales deeply] Do you want to try it? Try it. Try it. [Inhales deeply] And then blow. [Exhales deeply]
