My Feelings Lapbook is a brilliant resource for working one to one with a child. Perfect for ELSA’s, Learning Mentors, or anyone who works one to one with children.

Children learn lots about emotions.

This download contains all the templates and activities you will need to create your own lapbook. All you will need is an envelope folder (document wallet) measuring 34cm by 24cm or a large piece of card measuring 55cm by 35cm, some sticky velcro, laminating sheets, split rings, glue and a whiteboard pen.

You can read more about lapbooks on this link and also please look at the photos to see how I put my lapbook together.
