The cards relate to six emotions: happy, sad, fear, anger, surprise, and disgust and a list of synonyms for each emotion to help expand vocabulary.

Emotion Skill Strips has four levels:

  • Level 1 Cards – Each card presents one person exhibiting three different emotions. Student listens to/reads the prompt (Show me SAD.) and points to the correct facial expression associated with that emotion.
  • Level 2 Cards – Using the same prompts as in Level 1, student chooses the person exhibiting the correct facial expression from three different photos of children and adults.
  • Level 3 Cards – Three different people are expressing three different emotions. Student listens to/reads the question or scenario (e.g., “Who lost a pet?”) and chooses the person exhibiting the appropriate facial expression.
  • Level 4 Cards – Student studies the person’s facial expression in the photo presented and then chooses which event prompted this particular emotion.
