Resource Info

This fun emotional literacy resource also helps develop fine motor skills and prompt discussions around emotional expression.

Directions: Cut out the parts of the face – hair, eyes, noses and mouths – and ask your child to assemble on the blank template to make a face! Just by moving around the parts, your child can make so many emotions. How many different emotions can they make? Make sure you talk about each emotion and how the face expresses the emotion.

Benefits:

• Emotional literacy and development – learn about emotions and how faces express emotions.
• Facilitate openness and discussion – children learn from very early on that talking about our feelings is accepted and normal.
• Fun and interactive – this resource is all about moving parts of the face to create different expressions.
• Communication tool – your child can also move the parts around to communicate how they’re feeling. Can they do this each day?
