February is a time for celebrating love. Not just romantic love, but friendship and family. Kids can however have mixed feelings about Valentine’s Day. They may feel jealous of those who receive more Valentine’s, indifferent, happy, or sad due to circumstances within their family or with friends.
These Valentine’s themed February emotions printables can help kids identify and talk about their feelings.
February Copywork Emotions Sentences:
I strongly believe that teaching emotions is more important than teaching academics. Children need to develop a firm understanding of emotions and learn how to effectively express their own. These February emotions printing practise worksheets allow kids to practise their printing while also normalizing talking about emotions.
These copywork pages allow students to explore emotion words and associate the images with the corresponding feeling. This expands their emotional vocabulary.

Download the printable pages. If you want them to be reusable, laminate the pages or slip them into a plastic page protector. Students can then use a dry erase marker to complete the tracing and writing.
For one time use, give the student a pencil, crayons, coloured pencils, or markers and the printed papers.
Instructions for the student:
- Read the sentence.
- Fill in the outline.
- Trace the dotted words.
- Write the sentence on the lines provided.
- Discuss the different emotions.
These worksheets can be the jumping off point for a discussion with the whole class or one-on-one talk about different emotions. They can be used by teachers, homeschoolers, parents, or therapists.
February Feelings Log:
Keeping a daily log of feelings helps kids to look at their emotions. It can also allow them and their teacher or parents to recognize any patterns they see emerging when looking back through the log. This can provide a lot of insight.
Doing this quick daily exercise is an easy way to help kids to talk about their emotions and get to the root of why they are feeling the way they are. Doing this at the same time each day can develop a positive habit.
It may be most helpful to do this in the morning to then be able to adjust activities or expectations based on how the student is feeling or it may be best to do after supper or before bed to reflect on and analyze the day.
Teaching emotions is such a powerful tool. It arms children with a skill they can use their whole life.
I’ve created a special Feelings Log for February. It includes a writing prompt and drawing prompt about Valentine’s Day, and weekly tracking sheet of “Today I feel” along with cute heart faces to use to help them better express their emotions.
