As a primary teacher, I often find students have a hard time thinking of ideas for small moments to write about during writing time. However, I have found they can produce stronger stories when they are tied to an emotion. This graphic organizer allows students to organize small moments in their lives by feelings they have experienced. I have my students keep this as a brainstorming tool in their writing folder.
An awesome brainstorming tool to use after reading Jamie Lee Curits' "Today I Feel Silly & other moods that make my day"
