Description

Our Characters – Feelings Lesson Plan engages reading comprehension and analytical skills as students identify the feelings of a character from a story or book and match feelings with actions.  Generalize the concepts by demonstrating and practicing how students can tell how a person feels by the words they use.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resource Snippet:

  1. Display a list of feelings.
  2. Ask individual students to share an experience related to one of the feelings.
  3. Allow for responses and discussion.
  4. When students are sharing the experience, most will probably not use the “feeling” word. Tell students that listening or reading the words in a book can tell you how a person feels.
  5. Distribute the Feelings content page. Read and review the information with students, include additional examples if necessary.
  6. Distribute the Activity pages. Review the instructions. Distribute scissors and glue/paste.
  7. Once students have completed the activity, review their work. Some of the feeling, like excited and happy may be interchangeable.
  8. When students share responses, ask why they chose each feeling.
  9. Distribute the Practice page. Allow students time to complete. Review responses.
  10. Distribute Homework page. You may turn it into an assignment they can work with a parent/guardian to help them write the sentences.
