Emotion Vocabulary Cards and Spelling Practice
: Help your students learn about feelings and emotions with these vocabulary cards. These cards encourage students to practice using more complex emotion words, including Embarrassed, Excited, Frustrated, Pleased, Sick, Surprised, Tired, Worried, and Jealous. This set also includes a set of cards that has pictures and spaces for children to practice spelling the vocabulary words with letter tiles. You could also use the second set to have each child write in the words themselves to create their own vocabulary card set.
Emotion Memory Game
: This game is a great way for children to practice the recognition of emotions. The images and vocabulary included in this set go beyond basic emotions to teach children increasingly complex emotions, building their repertoire as they age.
Emotion Practice Set - Recognition and Expression
: 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.
Emotion Practice - Sorting
: Help children practice empathy and recognizing others' emotions using this pack. Each mat includes three different emotions, and a number of suggestions for how a child could help a friend who is feeling these specific emotions. Student have to match the suggestion to the most appropriate emotion.
Emotions - Can you make this face?
: These cards are intended to be used with a mirror to help children practice facial expressions which express emotion. Which children are aware their emotions, and understand how to express them, they are better able to communicate their feelings and what they need from others.
Emotions and Feelings Bunting
: This bunting is a great way to remind students of emotions, even when you are working on other concepts. It includes 9 different emotions for children to practice recognizing and expressing. Hang the full color version in the classroom for a daily visual of emotions and feelings. The black and white version can be colored in by your students, making it a great group project that everyone can take part in. I have also included blank templates, in both the color and black and white versions so that your class can add additional emotions and feelings as you learn about them.
