Make teaching about feelings fun with the set of whimsical elves. They grin, grimace, groan and
gesture through 20 emotions to help children learn how to identify and express such different
feelings as pride, anger, excitement and disappointment.
Each bright, full-color elf appears on two cards; one is printed with the emotion’s
name in three languages — English, Spanish and Japanese. The corresponding
cards use only elves, so the cards can be used in a wide variety of matching games. You can play
Old Maid, Go Fish — or one of several special emotions games created by Crary.
Each game is described on its own reference card.
“Engaging” and “Fun” are how
parents describe these cards, which provide a balance of comfortable and uncomfortable feelings
as well as illustrating intense, moderate and mild emotions. An excellent companion to The Way I Feel,
our Dealing with Feelings Series, and our other books on emotions.
Ideal for use in emotional literacy lessons, in rehabilitation therapy and in foreign language and
English as a Second Language classes. Appropriate for both genders and all ethnic groups.
