I have been filing away ideas for this bundle for what feels like forever, and I have finally gotten all of the resources together to make it a real product!
I designed this product with my students in mind, but knowing that with extension activities and differentiation, this product could work for a very wide variety of classrooms and students.
The clip cards are perfect for identifying emotion words and pictures! I created two sets so students don't start memorizing (ugh) and begin to really comprehend the words and the picture. This will help in writing reflections, journaling, etc. I also love that these can be used with dry erase markers, paper clips or clothespins! I do recommend laminating... if your students are anything like mine (mini-destructors).
This game is such a class favorite. I love how the caller cards are JUST words, and students need to listen, comprehend, and actually attend to the card to find the picture that matches. My students can be SO impulsive, and activities that require them to slow down in order to even participate are so important in teaching them school skills! The bundle comes with 10 unique cards.
I Have Who Has
My students need to play this game constantly... mainly because of how it helps their listening skills! Like Bingo, in order to participate, students must really listen and attend because they never know when it might be their turn. I also labeled cards as "beginning" and "end" cards - makes the game so much easier!
Write the Room
Great activity so kids can get up and move in a purposeful way. I like to do this activity in groups, I have half of the students working on computers while the remaining students complete Write the Room, then switch. It's also helpful for differentiation if you need to modify anything! Here's a peek at the recording sheet. I also made sure to add a "word bank" - I know the "I CAN'T SPELL THIS!" meltdown all too well.
Write and Color
I love this activity to target specific emotions! I know with my students, every unpleasant emotion they experience manifests as anger. You left me out of a game? I scream at you. I don't know what page we're on? Tantrum. I am uninterested in learning about outer space? I flip my desk. Allowing students the experience of actually LEARNING about emotions and when you may experience them can eventually help with their ability to generalize this into everyday life!
These worksheets are quick, simple, and most importantly LOW PREP! Holla!
