Help children build a vocabulary for naming feelings, as well as prompting discussion about how feelings are interpreted.
Each card features a delightful stone character brimming with personality and wearing a different expression. There are no words on the front of the cards, leaving the user free to interpret the feeling portrayed. On the back are three possible words for that feeling. Sometimes the words are very similar, sometimes quite different – you decide!
Describing feelings is at the heart of emotional literacy and therapeutic work. Yet, sometimes people interpret feelings very differently. Each card in this set features a stone on one side, and three words on the reverse to describe the emotion shown. Hey, that stone seems to be quivering: is he embarrassed, humiliated or shy? What about that heavy stone rubbing his chin: is he thoughtful, curious or concerned?
The 52 Stones cards are perfect for all sorts of activities. If you’re running a workshop, start by asking the participants to choose a card that shows how they’re feeling now, and how they hope to feel at the end of the day. If you’re a therapist, you might choose these cards to open a conversation with a client about a difficult problem. Which card represents the client’s feelings when the problem is worst? Which card represents the time when the problem is gone or more managable?
