EQteach feelings chart
Age 3-8 Years
This is unlike any normal feelings chart! It is rather a fluid and dynamic check-in that happens throughout the day or therapy session. The chart brings into the child’s awareness how many emotions they within a day, how to identify them and then to self-regulate! In a classroom environment seeing how their peers are feeling stimulates wonderful growth in empathy too.
A must for every classroom!

“We are enjoying playing your ‘Go Fish game’. I made a little story up to explain why each character felt the way he/she did and the children quickly related to the cute characters. This led to some lovely, insightful discussions about why the kids felt a certain emotion. It also helped me remind the kids all feelings are okay and that it’s how we respond to our feelings that is important”

“My children were able to identify with the characters easily and quickly. A really great resource. This is a hit with my class! They love playing the game -it even inspired them to play other games in my games corner.”
