FREE Feelings Word List Printable is a great tool to help those you work with or your whole family increase their understanding and expression of feelings. This printable Feelings Word List is great for the classroom as handouts, at home to have on the fridge or in your child's bedroom, or you can use it at your office to use in sessions or group work.


For families looking to increase a child's awareness, understanding, and expression of emotions there are a variety of “homework tasks” I give depending on the child and their family’s needs, but the general idea is to create consistent space in your day where you do a feelings check in. Whether it be after school, at supper time, or part of your bedtime routine, try to stick with a regular time as routine is important for children in many ways. Then, ask everyone to share three feelings they had that day and tell about what caused that feeling. Parents need to participate in this too! Encourage variety by using various feelings yourself and if your child has a tendency of using the common, Happy, Mad, Sad, then explore with them if it’s actually a different but similar feeling under those main feelings. Do this every day until feelings expression becomes more natural for your family and your child. Make it fun!
