Students need the correct vocabulary to analyze characters' emotions and motivations. These words are also helpful when describing tone and mood. This includes an emotion word chart, activities to help students learn the emotion/tone words, and two emotion word quizzes to assess their learning. Knowing these emotion words will also help your students succeed on standardized tests in reading. The teacher could even have an emotion word vocabulary word wall. These activities are very useful for your ESL and special education students, as well.
