PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This packet contains 12 task cards with reading passages and 12 task cards with with a mood term (example: furious, peaceful, anxious, etc.). Students will read the passages, identify the author's clue words, and match the passage to the card with the correct mood. I have attached a few pages to preview.
The purpose of this activity is to match the blue passage card with the correct red mood card. Students must be strategic readers and infer meaning from the author’s word choice in the passage.
Print, cut, and laminate the 12 blue cards and 12 red cards.
Students can work independently, in pairs, or in groups of 3-4 to match the mood term to the correct passage.
The passages contain clue words that imply a specific mood. Some passages may seem similar, but look for the overall emotion created by the passage.
Students can record the mood and clue words on their answer sheet. An answer key for the teacher is also included. Some phrases may not be listed on the answer sheet, but students may perceive them as clue words. That’s fine. They just need to explain their thinking.

Students may be unfamiliar with the mood terms. Review the mood terms beforehand for familiarity. Maybe make a list on the board or have them use a dictionary for assistance.
Another way to present this activity is to show one card on a projector and have the whole class determine together.
