Teach your students about feelings and emotions using pumpkins. Introduce jack o' lanterns and tell how they have an image carved into the pumpkin that conveys an emotion. Then go on to two engaging activities to teach feelings vocabulary and match feelings to situations. Your students will love the engaging graphics by Educasong and Melonheadz.
The following feeling words are addressed: happy, sad, angry, scared, excited, worried, proud, embarrassed and confused. The clip art I've used features a child's whole body (not just the face) so you can teach the facial AND body language that accompanies each emotion. Both genders are portrayed and there are both light-skinned and dark-skinned children. These can be used for individual or group lessons, or centers as they are self-correcting. Use on your smart board or Ipad or print and laminate. Some straight edge cutting.
There are 34 pages and most activity pages are in color and two black and white worksheets and a teaching story were added on 8-16.
The activities are:
1. Teaching Story about pumpkins and emotions,
2. Match feeling to facial expression and body language.
3. Identify emotion given pictured scenario.
4. Two black and white worksheets.
These activities span from pre-K to grade 3. For the pre-k children, I typically only introduce happy, sad and angry; sometimes scared or excited. I use the more complex emotions with kindergarten and older. These are for use by a Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Special Education teacher or 4K or Kindergarten teacher. A parent would also find them easy to use with their child. Perfect for a unit on feelings/emotions, friendship skills , fall or halloween.
