Product Description
This is a great poster for visual learners, who may think they know how they feel in certain situations, but don't know how to express it with words or actual actions. Each picture has a character SHOWING a specific feeling or emotion, and has two words the students can choose to express themselves....one higher level vocabulary word and one slightly more basic for students in lower grades. A great activity is to have your students take turns picking one of the pictures and act it out live in the classroom, then ask the others which emotion was being expressed.
Here is an idea/activity for your classroom wall.
1. Write an off limits emotion word on a sentence strip such as happy.
2. Write as many synonyms as possible right below it.
(ecstatic, joyful, thrilled, excited....)
3. Have your students bring pictures of people or animals showing the emotion through their actions or movements.
4. Use a poster to make a collage of all the pictures that were brought by the students.
5. Study each picture and have the students write phrases and sentences that express what the characters in the pictures are doing to SHOW the emotion.
6. One example might be: throwing yourself on the floor and spinning in circles.
