Studies show that when you cultivate your preschooler’s social-emotional skills, it can result in not only less aggression and anxiety on your child’s part, but your child will become a better social problem solver. The best way to start is by naming feelings. These colorful, illustrative Feelings Flashcards depicting 40 different emotions make it easy.
Each large, sturdy card has two opposing feelings — for example, brave on one side and scared on the other. When preschoolers learn how to use language to express their feelings, they are laying a foundation for future success in emotional intelligence.
Feelings Flashcards have rounded edges and store easily in a beautifully decorated, hinged box.

We really like these flashcards - my boys have them all memorized but it's nice to read over them and talk to them about what's going on in the picture and I also find myself reading other books and wanting to describe something and I'll reference them back to these flashcards. I am very happy we got these.
We use these as a conversation starter and talk about why the card people feel that way, have we ever felt that emotion, and what would make us feel like that, etc.
We have had a ton of fun going through these cards and learning about different emotions. She has started recognizing them outside of school time with other kids, relatives, and even on TV. It is even helping her in recognizing when she feels a certain emotion and then we can discuss how to best deal with that emotion. Plus, it helps with vocabulary and pronunciation of bigger words!
My 2 year old loves these cards. The day they came, he picked one and asked about it for 15 minutes. He loves knowing what people are feeling to begin with, so these are a great way for me to help him name more emotions. Since we started using the cards, I've noticed him using some of the words to describe his own emotions so I'm pleased.
This is a good concept. Some of the emotions are hard to describe....but I guess it is a good exercise in learning for both me and my child.
