1. Begin with copying expressions. Use the puzzle pieces to copy and name the expressions on the monkey. See the monkey feeling ‘Sad, Mad or Glad!’
2. Move on to naming a feeling. E.g. ‘Scared’ and ask the child to create that expression on the monkey without reference pictures.
3. Finally build connecting skills. Place a situation card over the monkey’s head. See what is happening and ask the child to identify the feeling. Name the feeling and make that expression on the monkey.
It’ll be a great addition to your storytelling sessions and is perfect for parent-child interaction.
