The many faces of Feelings-Draw that face

As part of our "Myself" unit we are exploring feelings. We actually won't be working on this until about two weeks from now, but I've already started to prepare for that week. Exploring emotions is not only wonderful as it helps students understand what they are experiencing emotionally, but to better understand those around them. We will launch this lesson with a reading of Glad Monster, Sad Monster to discuss what makes the monster feel the different emotions. This will help us link the feelings back to ourselves when I will give discussion time among partners to think about their own feelings and what makes them experience them. During writing time, my students will begin to work on a mini-book from Scholastic called "My Book about Feelings." I am guessing this will take about 2 days before it will be completed. Slower workers will need additional time. During our social studies time, they will work on drawing their different emotions using this worksheet. To top this concept off, I will be including a "finish the picture" center in my math centers this week (click here for the printable). How have you used this great book in your class? I would love to hear.

  1. Insecurity is one of the aspect that a person would probably fall. They tried to be something they never used before and triesd to compete among others. insecurity looses self-confidence and will make a person pathetic or shall we say paranoid but insecurities has always a cure or a solution just try to love oneself and avoid comparing your life , actions and status to others.
