This activity focuses on students identifying emotions and proactive strategies to use when they feel those emotions. Identifying and making the connection of what strategies will help students with their specific emotions is crucial for proactive behavioral management.

1. Students can work individually or with a partner for this activity.
2. Have student(s) cut out each emotion face.
3. Ask them to pick one emotion face to complete a workbox on.
4. Student(s) will glue emotion face into the left hand side of the box and then identify the emotion they feel that face represents.
5. Next, have students write about a time they felt this emotion.
6. Students will then write about what happened when they felt this way.
7. Lastly, students will identify an appropriate coping strategy to use when feeling this emotion. Students are encourage to reflect on a previous time they felt this way and identify what specifically could have helped them at this time. For example, if confused is the emotion and student identifies that they have felt this way when they miss the direction which leads to them missing work; the student can identify a coping strategy of asking for help from a teacher or peer to use for next time.
