This chart is great for gaining an understanding of how your students are feeling. Personally, I use this chart first thing in the morning. Students come in, pick up their clip art with name (not included in this product, you could also have them record their name with a dry erase marker or use a post it), and they place it on one of three feeling sections. I use Velcro for my students to attach their names to the feeling chart. Also, I get the chart blown up to poster size so the visuals are larger for students! After all students vote on how they are feeling in the morning, we discuss these feelings in our morning meeting. We then talk about problematic feelings, and what we are able to do in order to be ready to learn for the day. This can also be used individually, or for groups of students.
I hope you enjoy this product!
