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"

My son is getting better and better each week with the different cards. He's getting more elaborate and thorough with his descriptions of what he is seeing. My preschooler loves these too. Definitely recommend!
I really like using these cards to get my preschooler to talk about emotions and empathy. They help him to start to think about how other people may be feeling or reacting to a situation. My only complaint is, that while we have not made it through all of the cards yet, most of them seem to focus on negative emotions versus positive ones. I would like to see them embrace good things as well, such as cheering on others.
I bought these for my 3 year old but my 5 year old loves these just as much. I was really wanting to work on his emotional intelligence and this seems to be helping him. The drawings are simple but they really enjoy figuring out what is going on. It gives you some questions on the back of the card to ask but I will often ask a few more in-depth questions. I planned to just do 1-2 cards a week but they always ask for more!
Great book to talk about feelings and how to handle tough situations we have all encountered socially
My sensitive kiddo really enjoys working through each card and answering the questions.
