Would you like to build your student’s emotional literacy skills? Then this resource is perfect for you!
Your students will love playing this game while building their emotional literacy skills! Great for working on self-regulation, perspective taking and identification of emotions.
- 6 Bingo Boards with a variety of emotions
- 24 Emotion Prompt Cards
- 18 Emotion Picture Cards
Play the game two ways.
1. Students take turns choosing an “Emotion Picture Card.” All students playing use a counter to cover that emotion on their board. The first child to complete the board or get 3 in a row wins (depending on time constraints.)
***Kids love using creative objects as counters. . . like foam hearts.
2. Students take turns choosing an “Emotion Prompt Card.” Read the situation and then match it to an emotion on their game board. All cards could result in a variety of emotions, so a strength of this game that it allows for flexibility to see multiple perspectives. One student could pick “surprised” for the “surprise dance party” card and another student might pick “excited.” The first child to complete the board or get 3 in a row wins (depending on time constraints.)
***Creative students will even find ways to make even the most unlikely connections work if it helps them win the game. I typically play the role of the “Judge” and students have to make their case to me as to why that situation fits that emotion. (Great persuasive language skill practice too!) The Judge has the final say as to whether that situation will count.
