Talking about feelings is one of the cornerstones of emotional literacy. How do we teach children the meanings of words about feelings? Are we conscious of the need to build their emotional vocabularies as we attempt to develop their ‘emotional intelligence’?
At times we all struggle to find the right words to talk about what we are feeling. Often it is the simplest images, symbols and metaphors that are the most powerful. A major benefit of using imagery to describe feelings is that literacy barriers (either because the children are too young or because they have learning difficulties) don’t have any impact on their ability to communicate how they feel.
The Bears are a wonderful tool for helping children communicate how they feel. This card pack contains 48 high quality cards, each depicting a colourful, loveable cartoon bear which could be happy, sad, confident, afraid, shy, energetic, tired, noisy, caring, grumpy - you decide! There are lots of differents uses (many are described in the booklet included in the card pack and you are also encouraged to be creative and come up with your own)
