These break apart puzzles are a fun and easy way to help students develop their empathy skills and learn to recognize feelings and emotions in others.
Each 2-piece puzzle features a fun character that must be matched up with its correct situation. 8 different feelings in each of 5 different winter and Christmas characters, for a total of 40 puzzles! Puzzles are presented in full color as well as a printer-friendly black and white version.
Helps students learn the following emotions:
I realized today that I’ve never written about my Snowman Coping Skill Activity. I can’t believe I never did this because it’s one of my personal favorites and one that is a go-to activity for many of my social skills groups! So, I suppose I’m better late than never now.
This activity helps students learn how to handle anger or stress in safe, appropriate ways. It includes 35 coping strategy pictures (same as coping skills bingo game) from which students can select their favorite to put on their worksheet. I find it works great for kids with Autism, Anxiety Disorder, or Emotional Difficulties in grades 2-5.
This can also be found as a part of Social Emotional Holiday Activity Pack or on its own!
Well, it’s been just over 2 years since I first posted my Winter Social-Emotional Activity Pack. It’s definitely been one of my most popular products, and the activities have been used in my classroom many times over. So, I figured it was about time to add a few more! So, just in time for some shorter days and cooler temperatures (I know, I know, I’m sorry!), here they are!
First up are my seasonal Whole Body Listening Posters. The set contains 4 different posters (a boy and a girl of 2 different ethnicities) and highlights skills for being a good listener. My students love when my fall poster comes down and my elf poster goes up!
Next, I added a “Guess the Feeling Activity.” Many of you know I’ve been dabbling in creating my own clipart recently and this activity features several of my new Holiday Emotion faces! Students cut out feelings words on one page, and glue them underneath the corresponding face on the other page. It’s great for my K-2 students who struggle with emotional identification.
Last but not least, are some holiday-themed feelings flash cards. Using the same faces as my “Guess the Feeling” activity, you can use these cards for everything from role playing situations, to memory (just cut out 2 sets), or student communication cards.
