Detailed Goal: Managing Jealousy
Watch, Play, Learn SEL Block: Elmo is Jealous
Basma and Jad are playing make believe as a lion and a goat. Basma gets to play as the lion and Jad has to play as the goat, but he is jealous that he doesn’t get to be the lion. Chicken interrupts with a big feelings alert – it’s their friend Elmo! Elmo and Zoe are playing choo choo train and Elmo feels jealous that Zoe’s train sounds are better than his. Basma and Jad help Elmo identify his emotion as “jealousy” and teach him to be a tree to help feel better. This strategy helps Jad feel less jealous too.
Watch, Play, Learn SEL Block: Turtle is Jealous
Basma and Jad are doing animal impressions, but Basma’s bee impression is better than Jad’s and he feels jealous. Chicken interrupts with a big feelings alert – it’s their friend Turtle! Turtle and Gargur are playing hopscotch, but Turtle can’t hop like Gargur can. Basma and Jad help Turtle identify her feeling as “jealous” and help her feel better by teaching her how to “draw it out.” Drawing it out helps both Turtle and Jad feel less jealous of their friends.
Watch, Play, Learn SEL Block: Zoe is Jealous
In the garden, Basma and Jad anxiously wait for their individual flower patches to bloom. But when Basma gets all of the blue flowers Jad thinks it is unfair - he likes blue more than Basma! Chicken interrupts with a big feelings alert - it’s their friend Zoe! Zoe tries to mimic Elmo's cool one foot trick, but she can't balance and falls on her face. How come Elmo can do the trick and she can't? Basma, Jad, and Chicken help Zoe to identify her emotion as "jealousy" and regain her confidence in her own abilities by "talk talk talking it to herself."
