I love how much I am going to get out of this product! This is going to be perfect for my Kindergarten social language group! I also plan on using the perspective taking cards with my later elementary students. My favorite part about the product is that some of the cards have a question mark over the persons' face so that my students have to infer how the person is feeling!

I've been needing something like this for my kids, and have debated making it, but couldn't find the right clip art! I'm so happy to be able to buy it. Understanding emotions is SO important for other social skills, problem solving and making inferences.
