There are many different feelings that we can experience.
Some of these feelings are good feelings e.g. happy
Some of these feelings are not so good feelings e.g. scared.
It is ok for us to experience both types of feelings and it is good to talk to somebody about all of the feelings we have so they can help us.
Do you remember Maz the alien?
Can you help him to sort these feelings by copying the feelings words onto a piece of paper and drawing a smiley face next to words that are good feelings and a sad face next to words that are not so good feelings. If you are unsure you could put a question mark '?' next to the word.
Here are the feelings words (you can add some of your own too):
