 ‘… the single best childhood predictor of adult adaptation is not school grades, and not classroom behavior, but rather, the adequacy with which the child gets along with other children. Children who are generally disliked, who are aggressive and disruptive, who are unable to sustain close relationships with other children, and who cannot establish a place for themselves in the peer culture are seriously at risk.’ (Hartup, 1992, p. 1)

 ‘Data shows that children who are systematically taught social and emotional skills like how to manage their distressing emotions better, empathize and collaborate do better: have fewer problems such as substance abuse and violence, like school more and pay more attention in class—and score significantly better (11%, on average) on academic achievement test scores.’(Goleman, 2008, p. 1)

I was always passionate about teaching children to understand their emotions and being empathetic towards others. It drew me to create this teaching resource.

– Sorting activity with 8 different feelings/emotions (happy, shy, loved, curious, worried, sad, lonely, and scared). Children are encouraged to match pictures to particular feelings/emotions.

– Emotions Montessori 3-Part Cards with 8 different emotions: happy, sad, excited, tired, worried, scared, surprised, angry. It also encourages children to guess the reasoning behind feelings. Children are encouraged to name familiar emotions and learn to recognize familiar words. 

– Printable for children: “My Emotions Book”. Children reflect on their learning by naming and drawing emotions on faces.

Companion Books can help to complete series of teaching children how to manage and understand their own emotions and feeling and empathize with others.
