FEELINGS? How are you today? 


How are you today?  

It is easy to say ‘Va bene’ or ‘I am ok’ .

But young children find it difficult to express how they are feeling. They may not even know how they feel!  

It’s difficult enough in their own language so how hard must it be in a new language? 


Making faces from plastic plates showing the different feelings helps children not just to learn a new language but also gives parents and teachers an opportunity to help youngsters to express their emotions. To understand them. To know that their feelings are normal. The eyes can be either stuck on or you can use a permanent marker. 


Kids will have lots of fun telling stories and dramas using the plastic faces. It helps if the faces are mounted onto rulers first. 

There is a programme on feelings for children on my channel here:  Link to FEELINGS programme
