These Character Emotions Charts can be used when reading to understand how a character is feeling or during writing to add emotions to stories. You may want to put a copy in students’ reading response journals and/or their writing journals.
This freebie includes a color and black & white copy of two different charts. The first chart already provides a list of basic emotions and corresponding clip art. The second chart is for older students as it includes synonyms. Students may add to the lists as they find more synonyms. They may also want to use the blank faces to draw feelings and write additional emotions they find while reading.
