Sponge Activities

Feelings Circle

This activity is geared toward the younger ones. Have students arrange themselves on your class rug in a circle. Have laminated strips of paper prepared--enough for each student. On the strips, depict faces (human or animal or other character) with six or seven different emotions. Students enjoy pointing to the emotion which matches what they are feeling and explaining why.
