Suggestions for Use

  • Print out the bright full copies, glue them onto colourful backing card - laminate and make an Our Feelings Chart / Wall Display, or Bulletin Board Display.   These are then ready for children to refer to during writing sessions.
  • These words work in really well with our Concept Book 'My Feelings'.
  • Brainstorm more feelings words as a class or in groups.   Extra blank cards are available with the above download.  They can be printed out and extra words can be written on to add to this theme group.
  • Hand out the feelings words.   In pair or groups children act out situations that might make them feel this way.
  • Make up feeling faces puppets using paper plates and popsticks.  Use for role playing feelings.
  • Play 'guess how I am feeling' game - one child acts out a feeling - other children guess what that feeling is.
  • Make up a feelings chart to put on the wall - one side with the list of feelings and another side with room to keep tally marks. As the children come in each morning or at certain times throughout the day, each child puts a tally mark next to the way they are feeling at that time. End off each day talking about the prominent feelings from the chart and why children may have been feeling this way.
  • The endings 'y' and 'ed' are quite prominent with these words, as are double letters.  Use these words to highlight these phonic patterns.
  • There are heaps of phonics opportunities with these feelings / emotions chart words....play around with them - what patterns can the children find, circle the patterns, colour them in - make it fun.  Print off small size black and white copies to do this - see below.
  • You can make these words smaller size by using the reduction settings on your printer and just printing off black and white copies, these smaller sizes are great for cut and paste activities such as cutting out the words and pasting them in alphabetical order, or into the sporting categories as mentioned above.
  • Make a Feelings Alphabet Book using the template from Printable Alphabet Book - children place a feeling word on each alphabet page.  (Don't forget to do a large A3 size whole class one and pop it in the class library also)
  • Make a jigsaw puzzle.  Make up a second set of cards, cut the picture section off using a zigzag or curve cut like a jigsaw (you can even cut through the word to make it more of a challenge)  Children then match the 2 or more pieces.   Also great for breaking up syllables or blends within words.
  • When not being used on a wall display or feelings chart, place them in labelled boxes, or hanging pockets for continued use and reference.
