This fun activity focuses on understanding and matching words to facial expressions and body language using play-doh mats as a reinforcer. When the students identify (or you "catch" them) matching what they say to their non-verbals, they get a small ball of play-doh (any color) to squish on one of the happy camper bubbles on the mat. The goal is to get all 8 bubbles squished!
My product includes:
4 colorful happy camper themed play-doh mats
1 information page to talk about why we need to match our words
to our facial expressions and body language
12 social scenario cards to practice the skill
9 pictures of kids with different examples of emotions and body
Directions for the activity and extension ideas are also included
This is perfect for preK-elementary students working on social skills in speech, counseling or with whole class instruction!
I also have a money saving bundle of 7 social skills squish packets here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Social-Skills-Squish-Bundle-1927594
