I modified this a bit to use it for our first day back after virtual learning for over a year! My students loved the emojis!
Used it as icebreakers in the beginning of the school year. My kids love using emojis in the classroom:)

“Thank you for this wonderful resource. Having a composite class of grade 1 and 2 students this year I really appreciated the differentiation you included in the pack. Fantastic resource. The kids LOVED choosing their emojis and then went on to independently design their own for other emotions. Thank you!”


“Love this! We used this on the first day of school so I could get a writing sample and hang them up on our writing wall. Students love anything emoji so this is a very engaging writing activity.”


“My students really liked this activity.  Some of the pics they drew and used really allowed me to figure out how they felt about starting school this year.”
