Emotions: Songs, Stories, Crafts, Printables

Emotions and being able to communicate what we feel is fundamental. Exploring, identifying and learning to cope with emotions is something that every child must experience. If the child is learning another language, they need to be able to talk about how they feel in that language too.

On this page, you can find fun songs to help children learn emotions vocabulary and stories that connect very well to this topic. Explore the importance of sharing with ‘All Mine!’. Talk about having brothers and sisters with ‘It’s not fair’. Let children express their feelings of being laughed at or different with stories like ‘The cow that went oink’, ‘Elmer’ and ‘That’s not funny!’ Follow the links to find more stories that touch on important experiences for every child.
