Importance of Learning Emotion Recognition
Recognizing emotions is a very important part of daily life. When children learn how to express and understand their emotions, it helps them overcome challenges, understand others, and communicate. Helping your kids learn how to communicate their feelings and emotions effectively gives them the social and emotional tools they need to understand themselves and others better. By teaching children how to express their feelings and how to respond to the emotions of their peers, you help them recognize and deal with their own feelings and emotions.
Teaching Emotional Literacy
Emotional literacy helps children to be socially competent and enables them to recognize and respond to social cues appropriately. Emotiblocks and the included cards teach children how to recognize facial expressions and the words for them in six different languages. The activity cards can be used as prompts for children to practice expressive language (output) when talking about the emotions or receptive language (input) as they hear about the emotions. The teacher's guide offers many ideas for activities and games that will help kids learn emotional literacy while having fun.
