Emotions Cards For Identifying Feelings And Emotions At Your Zen Den Or Calm Corner

Use emotions cards in your classroom for your students to have a portable way to identify emotions and feelings. Students can keep them at their desk or use them at your zen den or calm corner.


Want your students to identify their feelings and emotions so they can self-regulate and be ready to learn with their classmates?


Identifying feelings and emotions is the first start for self-regulation. But your students won’t walk into your classroom knowing all the complex emotions they might feel throughout a school day. By teaching your students different feelings using these cards, your students will be less confused about their emotions.
