Emotions Reading

Explore the many types of feelings and how people express them with a instructional activity compiled of kid-friendly activities that spark critical thinking, self-reflection, and reinforce language and writing skills. Scholars delve into the variety of emotions with an emoji warm-up, followed by a matching activity that combines feeling words and adjectives. Class members also participate in a game of charades, write a letter to an advice column, and take a quiz that looks at how strong of a friend the quiz taker is.
