Identifying Emotions Packet

  1. Jen Schroeder says:

    Wow! I love that you included real pictures. They’re definitely worth the ink. I have been looking for real pictures and appreciate the activities that you have paired with them. The Level 2 and Level 3 activities are great too!

  2. Sharon Swindell says:

    Shannon ~ Thanks for such a great resource! I love the fact that it is leveled and includes real photos. I will be able to use this with my kinders through my older elementary crowd.

  3. Carol says:

    Your Identifying Emotions pack looks good, especially for kids with whom you’re just beginning to work. I’ve used Jenna Rayburn’s “Perspective Taking” that includes real photos as well and they are very helpful. I also just found a website with an online game called “Do You Feel Me? A game about emotions” It gives more than basic words to identify emotions with a child in a video format describing their feelings. I haven’t used it yet, but it looks very promising for some of my older kids who can handle the vocabulary.

  4. Judy Hale says:

    I LOVE that there are a variety of emotions included in this packet, and that there are levels, so that it is adaptable to many different students and their skills. On my wish list, for sure!

    I love this packet! I saw the movie Inside Out this summer with my own children and just loved it. I decided to decorate my classroom door with the characters this year as I had movie posters from the theater. I don’t have an official product that I use for emotions, but I love reading books to my students to talk about emotions. Your product would be a good addition!

  6. Fiona says:

    Great work putting this pack together. I have just pulled out all of my feelings books again to get started, as part of implementing The Zones of Regulation. I often say to my colleagues – I wish someone would write a curriculum for teaching feelings/emotions. Please I have used Teaching Children With Autism to Mind Read. I would love to add your ideas to my collection but if I’m not chosen I will buy them anyway.

    I really like that there are different levels in your packet. Definitely a range of abilities to understand emotions in the autism group. I have a book I got last year when I heard Temple Grandin speak (it is not by her) – The Social Skills Picture Book -Teaching Play, Emotion, and Communication to Children with Autism by Jed Baker, Ph.D. I like it because each page states a skill (e.g., Make eye contact with the person talking.) and then shows photographs to show Right Way and Wrong Way. I also like it because it gives suggestions for creating a social skills picture for a particular child and letting them pose for pictures, help assemble the book, etc.

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

  9. Delanee says:

    I love the use of real pictures. I too, think it’s worth the ink!

  10. Alane says:

    This is adorable!!!!! What a sweet thing to give away!

  11. Heather Hevener says:

    I love that there are different level since I work with elementary through high school students.

  12. D Guenther says:

    I like the variety of activities that can work for a number of kids. The different levels for different ages or abilities is another plus. Just started with a new school and have a few students that would be great to use this with.

  13. I love the different levels and the real photos. Great product as always!!!

    I Love the fact that you incorporated writing activities. This is especially useful for older students working on expressive language skills.

  15. Macy says:

    I love how your Level 1 sheets break it down into different parts with the “how do you know?” activity! So many of my kids just rely on “he’s smiling” or “he’s frowning” and I feel like a broken record telling them to look at other features besides the mouth.

  16. Lora says:

    I like that you’ve created an option for students to participate in creating their visuals to support their learning goals.

  17. Patricia says:

    What a great packet you put together! Thank you! I would love this packet because of the different levels you put together. I think it would be so helpful for my ASD kids who have difficulties with perspective taking. This would help in teaching and building upon those skills in each of your levels.

  18. Karen says:

    There are many things I love about this packet! First, I like that you included 3 levels to help target this skill. Second, I love that level 1 prompts the students to use different features to identify the emotion. Lastly, I think it’s really important to identify emotions on real people in real situations, so I love that this packet includes real pictures! Thanks for your hard work 🙂

  19. Kathy says:

    Love the different levels, photographs a plus too. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  20. Amy England says:

    I currently use real pictures matched with Boardmaker symbols. Although my students have gotten proficient at matching the real picture to the symbol they still have trouble identifying emotions within a situation. I look forward to seeing your packet. Thanks for the opportunity of the giveaway!

  21. Kristine says:

    This looks like a great packet! I like how there are 3 levels of difficulty. I also like that the students have to explain how they know the person is feeling that way. This is often hard for kids to explain.

  22. Lauren says:

    What a cute packet! I love that it comes with three different levels to work on identifying emotions. The real photographs are helpful as well. I like to play a game with the kiddos where they choose a card and have to imitate the facial expression of the character on the card. The other kids have to guess which card (on the board game) matches that facial expression. Then we talk about how that person might be feeling, why, and when are some times they have felt that way. As an interning graduate student, this would be fantastic to use with my kids! 🙂

  23. Kerry palider says:

    This would be an awesome resource to use with my students. I love the varying levels. Social skills are often so hard to teach and this would really help.

  24. Becky S. says:

    I love the different levels that can be targeted with this packet! With one of my littles, we have been working on sorting pictures of emotions (photographs and drawings) into different emotions (happy, sad, and mad, as of now). He’s also been practicing making his own faces for these emotions and drawing them as well.
