Abstract/Notes: This action research project was completed to test the effects of storytelling on the emotional development of three to six-year-old children in a Montessori primary (PreK-K) environment. The setting was a rural school, and this study took place in an environment with 28 children who are predominantly Caucasian and come from upper-middle-class families. Data was collected using a tally sheet, observational field notes, a small group discussion rubric and an observational rubric. Storytelling took place each day and stories centered around emotions like anger, sadness, and frustration. The adult would share a story first, then invite the children to share stories. After, there would be a small group discussion about the way the particular emotion might feel or look. The results concluded that storytelling did help children with their emotional development by giving them the language they would need to be able to express themselves. The action plan implications conclude that the study could be conducted using different methods of discussing emotions.

Abstract/Notes: The subject of practice-based thesis was children’s emotional skills and emotional education in early childhood education. The mandator of the research, Montessori Daycare of Lahti had a need for tailored emotional education material for their daily life in the daycare. The aim of thesis was to produce functional material for emotional education and a guide for the use of the material to the mandator, Montessori Daycare of Lahti. The needs from Montessori Daycare’s daily life guided the planning process and it was developed by implementing short functional lessons on emotions with a small group of children. The purpose of the thesis was to give tools for emotional education for early childhood educators. The end product of thesis was emotional education -package, which contains puppets made by hand, some essential equipment for drama and a guide for implementing emotional education lessons. The package was designed so that it can be easily handled and carried around, which enables having lessons also outside of the daycare environment. The exterior of the package is designed to be in line with its contents and as a whole the material follows the guiding principles of Montessori education. Based on the trial use of the material and the following evaluation, the emotional education -package was found to be well functioning and the material can be used in the daily life of the daycare in addition to emotional education lessons. This shows that the aim and purpose of the thesis, producing tools for emotional education for early childhood educators, has been achieved. / Toiminnallisen opinnäytetyön aiheena oli tunnetaidot sekä tunnekasvatus varhaiskasvatuksessa. Aihe tuli toimeksiantajalta Lahden Montessori-leikkikoululta, jolla oli selkeä tarve heille räätälöityyn tunnekasvatusmateriaaliin. Työn tavoitteena oli tuottaa tunnekasvatuksen toiminnallinen opas ja siihen liittyvä materiaali Lahden Montessori-leikkikoululle. Materiaali suunniteltiin päiväkodin arjesta nousseiden tarpeiden mukaan, ja sitä kehitettiin toteuttamalla toiminnallisia tunnehetkiä päiväkodin lapsiryhmälle. Opinnäytetyön tarkoituksena oli antaa varhaiskasvattajien käyttöön lisää työkaluja tunnekasvatukseen, tunteiden tunnistamiseen, nimeämiseen ja käsittelyyn lasten kanssa. Opinnäytetyön tuotoksena valmistui tunnekasvatussalkku, joka sisältää itse valmistetut käsinuket, tarvittavat draamavälineet sekä oppaan tunnehetkien toteuttamista varten. Salkku on suunniteltu niin, että sitä on helppo käsitellä ja se on kätevästi mukaan otettavissa, jolloin tunnehetki on mahdollista toteuttaa myös päiväkodin ulkopuolella. Salkun ulkoasu on suunniteltu yhteneväiseksi sisällön kanssa, ja se on Montessori-oppien mukainen valmisteltu kokonaisuus. Kokeilun ja arvioinnin pohjalta voidaan todeta, että tunnekasvatussalkku on toimiva kokonaisuus, ja materiaalia voidaan hyödyntää myös päiväkodin arjessa varsinaisten tunnehetkien ulkopuolella. Tämän perusteella voidaan todeta, että työn tavoite ja tarkoitus tuottaa varhaiskasvattajille käytännön työkaluja tunnekasvatuksen toteuttamista varten, ovat toteutuneet.

Abstract/Notes: In 2016, we are gathering in Chicago, the City of Broad Shoulders, to discuss and reflect on the fundamental principles, values, and perspectives at the heart of Montessori" When I first read these words on the AMS weBsite, aBout the upcoming AMS 2016 Annual Conference, in March, I instantly saw the connection Between this year's conference theme ("Montessori Principles, Values & Perspectives") and emotional intelligence, the work of keynote speaker Dr. Mitchel Adler. A licensed clinical psychologist, certified group psychotherapist, and co-author of the Book Promoting Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, Dr. Adler is also the director of MindBody Intelligence (MBl) Consulting in Davis, CA. Without a teaching credential, I applied for a joB posting for a private elementary school math and science teacher. First and foremost, I'd say this would be an issue of self-awareness-that is, understanding our own feelings, our own buttons, our own triggers, and how our feelings are manifested.
