What Is Your Mood? Check Out Our Middle School Mood Meter

The ability to recognize, understand, label, express and when necessary, regulate our emotions is critical to our emotional health and success in school.  Understanding these skills using the RULER approach provides our students with an opportunity to utilize the Mood Meter—an important component to the Anchors of Emotional Intelligence.  Our Mood Meter Mondays allow students to utilize this resource to self-identify their emotion prior to lunch.  This provides one data point to assess our students’ emotional well-being and our overall culture and climate at Pocantico at the beginning of each week.
