Emotions




Have you ever had a child that had a hard time expressing their emotions?

On my recent trip to Wal-Mart I found a sticker book for young children that is called: Silly Pets Sticker Face. I came up with the idea that would help a child who would typically have a hard time expressing their emotions. All you would need are the pages in the booklet that only have the animals on them. With those pages I would then draw in different facial expressions that express a specific emotion and then label each page. This is a quick and easy way to teach a young child vocabulary when it comes to his or her emotions and will also teach them the differences of these emotions and when they would typically take place. I am sure there are other ways you could also teach a child these emotions but I figured this is just another easy way. As far as for the stickers inside the booklet, I would have the young children practice drawing shapes and then adding the stickers as embellishments.
