Spinning the Emotions Wheel

Describing emotions can be hard for children, youth and even adults.  A lot of children will become frustrated and upset when they can't convey how they feel or can't find the right word to describe what's happening inside them.  This can lead to a child withdrawing from his or her family and friends or acting out in anger or sadness.  This wheel can help people see how they feel and describe it more effectively resulting in more understanding and less frustration.  Visual aids are often helpful for children and this wheel can be used in a step-by-step process to narrow down how they feel while learning new words to express themselves.
