Objective:

to recognize feelings of others

Materials:

Supporting Media:

Prep:

  • Print Totetude Basic Feelings.

Instructions:

  1. Review the feelings used in the game with the learners.  We recommend discussing the feelings of: angry, happy, excited, sad, scared, tired, sick, and silly.  Say the feeling and show the facial expression that goes with each feeling.
  2. The group practices their facial expressions.  
  3. Have the learners discuss whether the feelings they are showing make themselves feel good or bad inside.
  4. Explain to the learners that they will play a game.
  5. The rules of the game are: a) one learner stands away from the group; b) everyone else will be given a feeling that they have to show on their face;  c) the one learner returns to the group and has to look at the facial expressions of everyone in order to guess what feeling they are showing.
  6. Ask for a volunteer to either stand outside the open door or to stand a bit of a distance away so that he/she does not hear the feeling you call out to the rest of the group.
  7. Tell the rest of the group a feeling they have to show on their face. 
  8. Invite the volunteer to return and guess the feeling that everyone is showing.
  9. Repeat the game until everyone has at least one chance at guessing the group's feeling.

Extension:

  • Have a learner stand up and express a feeling.  The rest of the group has to guess what feeling the learner is demonstrating.  

Reflections:

  • I am able to recognize the feelings of others.
  • I am able to respond to the topic by reacting without talking.
  • I am able to volunteer to help.
