LET'S WORK WITH EMOTIONS

LET'S WORK WITH EMOTIONS

This material consists of 3 sheets size A3 (tabloid) with three templates to make three roulette, one whose main character is a monster, another in which is a girl and another in which is a boy.Each one has an arrow to mark the emotion you want to highlight. Each sheet also includes a small card of each emotion with each character.The emotions expressed here are: joy, sadness, anger, surprise, fear, fatigue, discomfort (sickness), being serious or quiet.You can use it creatively, although here are some ideas of what you can do with this material:- You can practice "making faces" of the different emotions presented here.- You can ask your students to indicate how they feel today.- You can play to make a face of some emotion and ask them to mark with the arrow the emotion that you are reproducing.- You can ask them to make faces and mark you with the arrow the emotion they are doing.- You can put all cards together and ask the kids to put together the ones that represent the same emotions.Anyway, these are just some ideas.

What Am I? Game

What Am I? Game

It's a set of flashcards that can be used for various purposes, but specially for playing the "Guess What I Am" Game. This game is very popular, and by using these flashcards you can adapt the game to the classroom. Instructions: One st picks up a card without looking at it, and then he/she shows the card to the rest of the class. (In the original game, you put the card in a band around your head, so that everybody can see it except you). The students asks the rest of the class questions about the flashcard: Am I an animal? Do I live in the city? Am I an object used in the classroom? Am I blue? Can people eat me? etc. The teacher can decide upon the number of questions the st can ask before risking an answer. If the st guesses, she/he gets a point. You can also play in groups, and instead of giving a limit to the number of questions, you can give a time limit, within which each group can pick up more than one card if the players guessed the 1st card.
