This song is about differentiating feelings (which are all ok and acceptable) from behaviour (which can be unsociable and unwanted).
The the tune is based on ‘Alloutte’, with some additions for the middle part.
Invite the children to make up their own words about ways to express feelings which are ok, and behaviours which are not.
It’s ok to feel angry,
and make an angry face
It’s ok to talk about it – feelings are ok
But….it’s not ok to hit,
and it’s not ok to push
It’s not ok to bite – do the right thing
What you feel and what you do are two different things
Whatever you feel is ok, it’s all welcome here
But try to choose the right behaviour, do the right thing
Try to choose the right behaviour, do the right thing.
