The students in my room LOVE to text, so I tried to play on their interest by using emoji clipart. This activity includes 24 scenario cards, each depicting a different emotion. It is differentiated so that you may maximize its use with your students. Pages 3-7 include cards with a social scenario. Each scenario has three matched emoji and emotion word choices. Student pick the one that best fits the scenario. There is a recording sheet if you choose to use it as well. The activity may be differentiated by having students read the social scenario and then generate their own emoji on the recording sheet (pages 8-11). By using the activity in this way, students build their vocabulary skills while providing an opportunity for you to talk about facial expressions at the same time.
