(Not) Flannel Friday: Feelings Faces

17 Feb

I created these faces (in MS Word) to go along with my “feelings” storytime. I bring them out one by one and the kids guess what the face is feeling, and then we try to make the face ourselves. Can YOU guess what they feel?:

Here they are with their labels, which I clip on after the kids have guessed each one. I end with the “HAPPY” face, because OF COURSE we want to finish with smiles!

(I’ll admit that the kids had a little trouble with “confused;” although, some of them did get it. They also said “thinking” and “frustrated”, which are equally valid!)

I’m sorry that I’m not longer able to share copies of these faces. But rest assured, you can make your own pretty easily! MS Word, draw some circles, etc. You can do it!

If YOU’RE happy and you know it check out the Flannel Friday roundup, today hosted by Katie at Story Time Secrets. To see this week’s and all past flannelboard posts, click on the link to the right to see them on Pinterest.

Happy flanneling!

    I’d have to say that confused is my favorite. 🙂 Recognizing emotion is an important skill for kids and what a fun way to practice in storytime – way to go!

    This will be joining my flannel stories soon. I do not have anything for the flannel board on feelings, although I do books on the theme. This is perfect. Thank you!

  31. Elizabeth Rhymer February 18, 2012 at 10:22 am #

  32. Vicki Kouchnerkavich February 18, 2012 at 10:02 am #

    Very cute, I could have used this in my Friday Pre-School group, as I did an Emotions story time. Children love to guess at things.

  33. K @ Storytime Fun February 18, 2012 at 7:29 am #

    Happy Flanneling! And Sad Flanneling… And Confused Flanneling…

    LOL! What a fun, simple, creative learning activity! I have so many ideas turning around in my head for adaptations of your idea for other themes and even for a craft or two, too. But first I want to make your version. I’ll be contacting you for the Word doc.

    I just love this! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  34. Lissa February 17, 2012 at 9:33 pm #
