Summer is in full swing. While we can sometimes think of summer as a more carefree time for kids, it can also be full of mixed emotions. Some children struggle with the lack of routine while others thrive in it. Events such as family gatherings or camping trips bring with them their own joys and challenges too.
These worksheets are a great tool to help your child practise skills related to their emotions. Increasing a child’s emotional vocabulary is a step towards increasing empathy and emotional regulation.
July Emotions Printables for Kids:
July Copywork Emotions Sentences:
- July Emotions Printable pages (download Emotions pages here)

- plastic sleeve AND dry erase marker
If you want for the sheets to be reusable, simply laminate the pages or slip them into a plastic page protector. Students can then use a dry erase marker to do the tracing and writing themselves. Or they can write directly on the pages with a pen, pencil, marker, or coloured pencils.
Copywork Sentences Instructions for the child:
- Read the sentence.
- Fill in the outline.
- Trace the dotted words.
- Write the sentence on the lines provided.
- Discuss the various emotions.
It may not seem like copying out sentences would lead to anything significant, but these sentences can do more than help a child practise penmanship. They are a good starting point for discussions about different feelings and they help create a culture where it’s normal to hear and talk about feelings.
You can expand the activity by having your child talk about a particular circumstance or time in their life when they felt that emotion.

My Feelings Log Instructions for the child:
- Choose one ice cream icon each day to colour, cut, and paste into your log.
- At the end of the month, you’ll be able to look back and see all the different emotions you felt.
- Discuss your feelings with a parent or trusted adult.
These adorable ice cream visuals can help your child better identify and work through their own emotions. You can sit down together and see which they have chosen. Once you see HOW they are feeling that day, you can help them dig into the WHY behind those feelings. Be sure to explain to them that it’s normal to have more than one emotion in the course of a day.
After figuring out what the feelings are, you can work together with your child on strategies for better managing how they deal with that emotion.
