What our Feelings lesson plan includes
Lesson Objectives and Overview: Feelings describes how to identify what a character in a story feels. Students will learn how to define terms related to emotions and match them to actions.
The lesson contains two pages of content. It starts off by defining feelings as the emotion or mood of a person. The lesson displays several pictures and example sentences that describe happy. Students can read these sentences and learn how they can figure out a character’s emotion even if the text doesn’t say it outright. There are also pictures and example sentences that describe sad.
Students will then go through a list of 16 other feelings. They will learn how knowing how a person feels help them understand the person better. In addition, they will discover how people often do things based on how they feel in the moment.
MATCH THE EMOTION ACTIVITY
For the activity, you may want to have students work with a partner or in small groups instead of working alone. There are three pages for the activity worksheet. Students will cut out each of the words on the first page. Then they will match these words to the correct sentences on the following two pages. There is a total of 16 sentences. There are also just 16 words to match, so they will only be able to use the word once.
CIRCLE THE FEELING PRACTICE WORKSHEET
The practice worksheet requires students to circle the correct emotion out of two options for 13 sentences. Each sentence contains two options to choose from. Depending on the reading level of your students, you may choose to go through this worksheet as a class and explain further whenever your students have questions.
FEELINGS HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT
The homework assignment lists 10 feelings. Students will write a sentence that describes an action that fits the emotion. Similar to the practice worksheet, you may choose to do this assignment with the class instead of having students do it at home. You could also adjust the number of sentences or feelings they have to write about.
