    Something like this but with actual photos; photos of the emotions in younger children and then another set with an older group of students (heading towards Secondary) would be great for SEN please!!

    • Jan 3rd

      Hey there Krohnr, thanks for commenting! I've had a look, and passed along your request to our resource designers to have a further look into :)

    • Aug 11th

      Hi there krohnr, to confirm, we have added "angry" now. :)

  • Dec 22nd

    This is good for EAL students so that they can express themselves even when they don't have the words. They can have their parents translate the meaning as a lot of the emotions are not very clear through their facial expressions. I find that the students use these more to express negative emotions. Sometimes when they are cross or annoyed they can simply look sad so these will help teachers understand their student better.
