Facial Expressions - Parent 3

Continued Growth


Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning the importance of identifying facial expressions. We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home!

Definition: Facial expressions show how a person is likely feeling inside.

Student Goal: When asked, the student will identify a peer/adult’s facial expression to interpret their emotion.

Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • What are facial expressions? ?
  • Why are facial expressions important in understanding another person’s message?
  • Can facial expressions provide us with information different from the words someone says?
  • Do facial expressions change the meaning of words?
