This pack includes three different sets of cards which are all designed to help children recognize emotions, become aware of how they express those emotions, and then practice the associated facial expressions.
The purple cards
These cards are intended to help children recognize the emotions that they feel. Read them the scenarios and see what answers they can come up with, there are no right or wrong answers to these questions. Some of these scenarios may require new emotion vocabulary that the children do not yet possess. This is the perfect opportunity to introduce new vocabulary and define these emotions and give examples of different reasons that children might feel these.
The orange cards
This set of cards is designed to help children recognize the ways that emotions are expressed. The answers that children give to these questions may be physical responses, such as crying, smiling, or hearing their stomach grumbling, or they may be other feelings and thoughts that combine to create entirely new emotions. Some of the children’s responses to these questions may also lead to additional discussion about appropriate ways of expressing emotions.
The green cards
These cards are meant to be used with a mirror. Ask the children to make the face that they would make when they are feeling each of these emotions, and after they have made these faces, describe each of them, and talk about why those particular expressions convey those specific emotions.
