Gives students a list of possible feelings, and then gives them the sentence starter, "I am feeling _____________ because"
This is a GREAT activity for students who have a hard time communicating their feelings. Works perfect as morning work, or a Daily5 Center! Helps students practice and understand how to communicate their feelings.
You can also make a journal out of this and have students fill out their journal every day. They could use this template as a scaffold and then after some practice, they can begin to do it on their own.
I used to give this every Wednesday to my students for morning work. Would be a great way to check in on them, and how they are feeling. Helps me to understand if anything is going on at home that might be affecting them in school, whether it be exciting or upsetting.
Also helps them to give evidence... WHY are you feeling sad? What is your evidence??
