Let’s focus on emotions. They are part of our foundation as humans - What we’re built on - and are a large factor of our behavior. It is so important for kids to be able to recognize and label emotions, identify how they are feeling and the effects of that feeling can have physically/outwardly. These cards are made to practice recognizing feelings in the moment and learning that we can feel something and it’s okay.
There are 24 cards - 20 emotions and 4 draw & write cards.
The set is 4inx5in and comes on a 1/2 in binder ring. Attached to the ring is a square felt eraser and an elastic tie, which wraps around the marker. Everything is meant to stay together as a set so that you can grab and go quickly.
You can choose your writing utensil using the drop down menu. I have a dry erase marker (Expo), dry erase crayons (Crayola) or a washable (from hands and clothes) dry erase marker option.
There are 3 different versions of these cards. Choose the one you’d like from the drop down menu. See the listing photos for examples of each version.
😃 “I can feel” in color
😃 “I can feel” in black and white
😃 “I feel”
Which option you choose will most likely depend on how you’ll be using the cards.
🍎 If you’re in a classroom, use the black and white version and hang it up in your science center. Kids can’t sit and color an emotion and talk it out with a teacher. Or use in a group and discuss each emotion.
😃 If you’d like to simply identify emotions, choose the “I can feel” in color option.
❤️ If you have a kiddo who needs help identifying his emotions in order to regulate, get the “I feel” version.
Please reach out if you have any questions about the options.
The following emotions are in this pack:
Proud, shy, scared, silly, excited, confused, confident, bored, frustrated, curious, sad, embarrassed, disappointed, surprised, grumpy, worried, tired, grateful, mad, happy
The final four cards (pictured) are:
“Right now, I feel” with a space to draw and a line to write.
“I like to feel” with space to draw and a line to write.
“When I feel (blank) I can” with a space to draw. Open up a dialogue about what to do when you feel “frustrated” or “confused” or really “excited”. Draw out some ideas.
“My friends feel (blank) when I feel (blank) with a space to draw. The point of this card is to help your child understand how his feelings affect those around him. You may or may not need to use this card, up to you.
Materials: directions for use, felt eraser, marker, half in binder ring, laminating sheets.
