At the beginning of the year, I hang up the feelings posters and go over the meanings of the words with my students. One of my daily procedures is to ask students how they are doing; they can respond with "muy bien," "muy mal," or "así así" or they can refer to these feelings posters and give a more detailed answer. Throughout the year, students naturally begin to use many of these feelings words without my explicitly teaching them. These posters also allow me to ask how different characters in our story are feeling. Although I haven't explicitly taught my students most of these words, I can ask how a character is feeling and point to the posters. This makes acting more fun for my student actors, since they can act out people who are nervous, angry, or scared; it also gives my students additional practice with these words.
