Emotions Check-In - at the beginning of each school day, have students "sign in" their emotional state just as they might sign their name in upon arrival.

Change this to "How do you think the character feels?" and hang in story corner to facilitate discussions.

Feeling faces are great for little ones that have a hard time finding the right word to describe their emotions. It works great with a feeling journal to help them learn what the feeling is and what the facial features might be in each situation.
