In daily life it is important to understand what you are doing. You decide whether you have to continue or whether changes are necessary. Self-observation can be expressed as a personal navigation device. The student keeps track of the actions that are carried out. In the example below, children in Brussels education register their feelings within the classroom context.
The kindergarten teacher uses Anna Llenas' book 'The Colour Monster'. For young children, feelings are often something abstract. The girl helps the monster to express the feelings by means of colours. The feelings are each given a colour: happiness yellow, angry red, sad blue and calm green.
In the third kindergarten class this is visible on the basis of a clear diagram, in which the pupils express their own feelings to their fellow pupils and classmate by means of the colours.
