Sometimes I Feel ... ColorCards

by Pia Jones

This beautifully illustrated card set is a practical tool for promoting emotional literacy with children aged from 4 to 8 years.

Full Description:   

This beautifully illustrated card set is a practical tool for promoting emotional literacy with children aged from 4 to 8 years.

  • The central characters (a boy and a girl) express and share their different feelings, both positive and difficult, using the language of metaphor, for example, 'Sometimes I feel like the world is my enemy' and 'Sometimes I feel like I am my very own super hero'.
  • Following the characters' expressions, children are encouraged to recognise and explore the intensity of their own emotions safely through metaphor, while at the same time 'owning' the feelings as the story is told through the first person.
  • The cards can serve as a springboard to allow children to invent their own personal metaphors for their feelings, and will help them to realise that they are not alone in feeling as they do.

    A valuable tool for teachers and therapists working with young children, this practical resource will help students to recognise and express their emotions.
