Children, speech impaired or not, can feel anxious in school or social situations where they are unprepared or made to be the center of attention such as being called upon to answer questions, asked to present on a topic, or have forgotten to bring in an assignment. For school age children, it can be difficult for them to understand or express this feeling appropriately. Often they withdraw, cry, or act out.
To help make this abstract concept concrete, I created a thermometer FREEBIE that is broken into three three color coded sections ; cool/blue, warm/purple, and hot/red, to represent the physical feelings attached to possible emotions they may be feeling.
