Feelings Bingo (Ages 3 to 6)
This interactive game (22-page printable download) helps children as young as 3 years of age learn to recognize, understand and label six feeling words: Happy, Sad, Angry, Scared, Calm, and Kind.
- Teach empathy and nurtures emotional intelligence.
- Ideal for use in homes, classrooms, counseling groups and more.
- Can be adapted for use with verbal, non-verbal, and deaf students.
- 20 Unique BINGO Cards
- 6 Feeling Calling Cards
- Card Markers
Play with groups large or small. The facilitator draws a calling card and announces the feeling.
Talk about each feeling word as you play. Ask children to make a face to represent each new feeling word you pull as you play the game and/or to act the new feeling word out. Ask children to share about a time when they felt the emotion featured on the card you pull.
When children find they have a match, they mark the spot with a card marker.
Additional Feeling Cards are drawn and talked about/play with until one child or more yells "BINGO" to signify that they have three markers in a row on their game card.
To further reinforce the learning, the facilitator can ask every child with a winning card to name and/or act out the emotions they have marked.
