I mentioned earlier this week that I was going to offer a new free printable pack every week for Autism Awareness month. I want to start doing this more consistently anyway so I figured that this was a good of a time as any to get that into gear. For the first week, I’m offering up a pack called: Managing My Feelings. Sweet B, as I may have mentioned before, uses PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) to help her out but I also create my own printable packs for her when PECS doesn’t quite meet our needs. Hence why I have quite a few of these free printable packs for autistic children.
She does have a pretty decent feelings set that I purchased elsewhere but I wanted to have a supplement for her so she could also use the sentence strips and to create stories.
What you get in this pack:
Feelings/Emotions cards (girl and boy version- with captions and without captions). You can use these for the provided sentence strips or to create a matching game
Sentence Strips (Today I feel, I feel, This morning I felt, but now I feel…)
Sentence Starters (When someone takes my toy away, I feel…)
And if you’d like any sentence strips or starters made, please let me know and I will be more than happy to create them for you. You can also take a look at the Moodsters Book and accompanying printable pack that helps kids identify moods.
I would recommend printing this out on cardstock and laminating them for continual use.
You can use these for any non-verbal or pre-reading child, on the spectrum or not.
