Activity: Use the Skill of Identifying Feelings

Objective:

to use knowledge in different ways

Materials:

(Optional)  1 scissors  for prep
(Optional)  1 container  per whole group

Supporting Media:

Prep:

  • Print, cut, and place the Totetude Basic Feelings printable into a container (optional).

Instructions:

  1. Have the learners recall as many feelings as they can remember.
  2. Call on a learner to either take a feeling from a container or chose one of the feelings mentioned during the discussion.
  3. That learner must make up a short story or retell a time when he/she experienced that feeling.
  4. More than one learner can use the same feeling to create a different story or retell an event.
  5. If the story is very short, the audience can ask questions: a) What happened next?  b) Why did you/he/she do that?  c) How did other people react?     
  6. As the learner is telling his/her story or event, another learner can act out what is being said.

Extension:

  • A learner can first tell a story or personal incident and then the group must decide what feeling was being talked about.

Reflections:

  • I am able to use what I know about identifying feelings.
  • I am able to talk with others.
  • I am able to tell/retell stories or everyday experiences.
