Social Emotional Balance - Mood Meter
What is the Mood Meter?
The Mood Meter is a tool used to recognize and understand our own and other peoples' emotions. It's divided into four color quadrants - red, blue, green, and yellow - each representing a different set of feelings. Feelings are grouped together on the mood meter based on their pleasantness and energy level.
Some classroom teachers utilize the MOOD meter both in school and through remote learning, to gauge their students readiness. We believe that especially during these UNIQUE times, it is critical to address the Social Emotional Balance or all P.S. 253Q community members. We encourage you to utilize the MOOD Meter provided to the right with its corresponding descriptions below:
- Red feelings: High in energy and more unpleasant (e.g., angry, scared, and anxious)
- Blue feelings: Low in energy and more unpleasant (e.g., sad, disappointed, and lonely)
- Green feelings: Low in energy and more pleasant (e.g., calm, tranquil, and relaxed)
- Yellow feelings: High in energy and more pleasant (e.g., happy, excited, and curious)
