Kimochis is a social-emotional curriculum that uses its cute character dolls to teach kids about emotions and how to communicate their feelings with others.
“Kimochi (KEY.MO.CHEE) means “feeling” in Japanese. Sometimes kids (and adults) have strong feelings that can fuel challenging behaviors. Sometimes it’s hard to know how to communicate when you are in an emotional moment. Kimochis are a playful way to help children (and adults!) learn how to identify and express feelings. When kids can communicate their feelings effectively, they develop positive social skills that lead to lasting friendships and success in all aspects of life.”
Excerpt from www.kimochis.com
“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self- awareness, if you are not able to manage distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.” — Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence
