Motivation
component:

(~ 2 minutes)

             Ask the students how
they would feel if a specific event took place.  Have them identify the emotion
they would feel.  Tell them that we are going to read another story about Frog
and Toad.  In this story, Toad feels some different emotions.

Procedures:

(~ 40 minutes)

1.

     

The students will read the story A Swim from

Frog and Toad
Are Friends

by Arnold Lobel.  During the reading, the students will talk
about how Toad might be feeling at different parts of the story. 

2.

     

After talking about Toad’s feelings, ask the students to brainstorm
different emotions and list their ideas on the chalkboard or chart paper.  Some
suggestions are: sad, happy, worries, surprised, brave, angry, etc.

3.

     

Point to each emotion that the students have listed, and ask the
group to make the appropriate facial expression.  Discuss when one might feel
these emotions.

4.

     

Ask the students to make a facial expression of an emotion not
listed.  See if the other students are able to guess his/her emotions.

5.

     

Give each student a copy of a magazine or catalog.  Explain to
them that they are to pick one emotion and try to find pictures of people feeling
those emotions.  They will them cut out and paste the pictures onto a large
sheet of paper.  Later, other students will try to guess what emotion they were
describing.
