Feelings & Emotions Charts Introduction
Recognizing emotions in ourselves and others is an important part of character development and a key social skill. Our creative Feelings and Emotions Charts, suitable for a range of ages and emotional development, help make this experience easier to explore and more successful.
Selecting a Feelings & Emotions Chart
You can select the level of Feelings & Emotions Chart you are looking for—-whether you are focusing on the basic feelings like sad, angry, happy, and mad—or more diverse feelings that are usually more recognizable by older kids or children with more developed social skills.
Using Our Feelings & Emotions Charts
Use of our Feelings & Emotions Charts can be a good starting point when trying to start a discussion with children who seem reluctant or unable to express their feelings. Some of these charts are helpful to help young children understand the difference in basic emotions such as angry, happy, and sad. Charts for older kids have more sophisticated feelings featured. You will see that one Feelings & Emotions Chart focuses on matching feelings to expressions, while others invite the child to express feelings by drawing. Our charts are also helpful when trying to develop compassion in a child. These Feelings & Emotions Charts can be used to focus on the feelings of others and how one’s behavior can affect siblings, friends, classmates, or other peers. Example: “How do you think you would feel if. . . ”
Keep it Interesting
Typically, Feeling and Emotions Charts are used occasionally, helping your child understand feelings at different stages of development. They can also be used when discussing sibling relationships or when discussing friendships. Try a variety of charts at different times.
