Pelican Talk knows this is one of the most IMPORTANT areas of learning. After all, communicating with others is the reason WHY we use speech and language... and emotional awareness is a BIG part of this.

Puppets are brilliant for exploring emotions. Just look at poor Gail the Snail. How do you think she's  feeling and why?  Discussing feelings and thinking about WHY others might feel a certain wayis vital for successful social relationships. 

Social Puppets is a program by Pelican Talk that targets 25 social scenarios common in the early childhood setting. With a strong focus on social understanding and emotions, this is a fun way to model, discuss and practise social skills. You can purchase Social Puppets here. (It comes with a program and 2 gorgeous kid puppets).
