Let's Learn Emotions {app review and giveaway}

Thanks for sticking with me as I've adjusted to the life of a busy school SLP!    Today, I bring you a BRAND NEW app!  There may be a giveaway later, so read on!

There are three activities as part of this app: matching game, discussion game, and flashcards practice .  There is also a section called manage emotions, where you can add your own emotions to the set.

The first is matching.  A question is listed at the top and then the student selects the picture that answers the question.

If selected correctly, it will highlight it in green.  If it is incorrect, it will highlight it in red like below:

The next activity is called Discussion Game.  It is straightforward- a discussion prompt and an emotion pull up.  The student then talks about it.

If the student would benefit from a picture cue, just touch the emotion word card and it flips to the picture.

The third and final activity is flashcards.  There is a picture that pops up.  Click on it, and the emotion as well as an explanation for how you can determine it pops up.

The final area is where you can add your own emotions:

If you want to change any of the settings, you can go to the settings page from the main menu:

or you can change the settings within each game:

Things I Love About This App:
-It targets goals my students are working on.
-It's engaging for my students.
-It uses real life photos.
-There are a variety of activities.
-You can add your own emotions/photos!
-It is really easy to use.

For Future Updates:
-Some of the pictures confused my students with autism.  For example, my students thought proud was excited.  I would love it if the pictures were a little more distinct, but I can also just turn off the confusing ones.
-I would love for there to be a way to take data in the app itself.  Not essential, but it would be nice.

Do you think this is something your students would enjoy?  You can find it in the iTunes store NOW for $2.99 here!

  1. I have been loving the TpT resources. They tend to be more functional and on level for my kids.

  2. This looks like a really great app! I cannot believe it is only $2.99. I seem to have more and more kids on my caseload who are working on putting words to emotions and discussing feelings-related things.

  3. My favorite autism resources are definitely Michelle Garcia Winner's social thinking materials and Jenna Rayburn's Perspective Taking packet. I actually like the social/pragmatic language test we have in the district in which I work. It is called the Social Language Development Test-Elementary. There are four parts to the test - (A) looking at a picture and identifying two things a person may be thinking and objective information about how you know s/he feels that way; (B) looking at a picture and determining two possible things that are happening; (C) listening to a hypothetical conflict between you and a peer, identifying the problem, coming up with a solution, and explaining why the solution is a good idea; and (D) providing verbal support for peers (e.g., Your friend spilled milk on his shirt, what can you say? Why would it be a good thing to say?). There is also an adolescent version.
