Feelings Cards for the Early Years – Big Cards for Little Kids
(24 A4 full colour laminated cards)
A tool for building emotional language with children in the early years. Using the cards children can learn
- about their emotions
- what their emotions are telling them
- how to interpret the emotional cues from others
Feelings are a universal language. Having knowledge of what they are telling us helps us develop self awareness and empathy.
The Feelings Cards for the Early Years are a set of 24 cards about 12 feelings. Each feeling is illustrated at 2 different levels of intensity. This signifies that feelings occur in degrees.
The feelings illustrated are happy, sad, angry, worried, calm, excited, kind, tired, surprised, giggly, sorry and proud. They represent 12 feelings related to diverse and identifiable physiological states.
Children use their emotional knowledge as a foundation for other skills like empathy, motivation, self control, conflict resolution and perseverance.
The 24 Feelings Cards come with ideas of activities for how to use them with children in the early years. The size of the cards makes them ideal for wall posters or as inter-active teaching tools.
