The GOOD PUPPY Children Behavioral System Emotimatch Game is designed with empathetic images that communicate with children before they can read. Children learn to recognize emotions as they learn to verbalize them in order to stop having to act them out. A didactic game to familiarize children with feelings, the GOOD PUPPY Emotimatch Game is recommended as a support tool to the GOOD PUPPY Emotions Chart, Dice & Domino Game.
To implement this tool, go over each emotion until children recognize them all. Then mix the cards and place them all face down in rows and columns. A player at a time uncovers two cards to try to find a matching pair. When a player makes a match, he takes those 2 cards and gets another turn. The player with more matches, when all the cards are uncovered, wins. Parents may also keep these cards handy as a tool to aid in the communication of feelings.
To build this tool print both sides of each page, laminate them for longer durability, cut out the cards and put Roger to the test!
