Get some giggles from your class and build understanding of the mood of a literary piece with this printable. Pupils fill in the mood in the gem part of the ring, and write down supporting details below (inside of the actual ring). While a little bit silly, the graphic organizer shows a relationship between the mood and the details and will lift the mood of your class.
- Scaffold the process more fully by determining a mood as a class and allowing learners to work with a partner to find details before sharing out
- Encourage class members to use evidence by requiring direct quotes from the text
