Talking about feelings is one of the cornerstones of emotional literacy. Here are 48 colourful, loveable cartoon characters – happy, sad, confident, afraid, shy, energetic, tired, noisy, caring, grumpy, and many more.
Use these cards to help children communicate feelings about family, friends and classmates. There are no words on the cards so this resource is very accessible to young children and those with literacy challenges. For use in a variety of situations: as an ice-breaker, and for one-to-one, small group and whole class sessions.
Ask children to:
- Select a bear that illustrates how they feel right now
- Find cards that show how they often / seldom feel
- Pick bears that show how they would like to feel most of the time
- Consider if they ever feel several emotions at once and choose cards to illustrate these mixed emotions.
“The Bear Cards… are invaluable. They are so versatile, friendly, quick and unassuming, which adds to their charm and usability in an infinite number of ways.
