What's Going on Here? Flashcards
What's Going on Here? flashcards are an excellent tool for parents who want to teach their children how to make inferences using both obvious and subtle observations, in conjunction with logic. The What's Going on Here? animal illustrations have much kid-appeal, and each tells a story for children to unravel.
There are parental prompt questions on the back of each card to guide the conversation and for helping your child to discern the motivations of others, what are appropriate social expectations, and how to develop respect and empathy. When you teach your child to study and decode sticky situations you give them insights on how to appropriately navigate social situations with both poise and confidence. What's going on Here? includes 50 flashcards and two parent cards.
Card Size: 4.5"x 6"

I wasn't sure what to expect with these. My kindergartener is very emotionally intuitive, so I thought that they might be a waste of time. However, I was really surprised when she wasn't able to asses what was going on in the cards. Many times, she "mis-read" what was going on, so I found the cards to be really helpful in talking about how we can look at faces and body language to get more information from the situation. She really enjoyed them, and even my 8 year old enjoyed chiming in once in a while!
My five year old daughter is captivated by these cards. She wants to go through the entire box every time we get it out. It is a great tool for teaching children to pick up on body language and to develop their observational skills.
These are great cards to open discussion with my kids. They allow us discuss emotions, empathy and how to handle various scenarios.
Super fun and engaging cards. Good way to gage others feelings and engage the kids.
My young girls love talking through each scenario on the cards. I’m glad we purchased these to work on inference skills and talk about how to handle certain situations.
