1 Use app to recognize emotions.

Begin the lesson by having a conversation with the students about the emotions they feel and experience. Tell students that we are going to learn about understanding these emotions and learning how to figure out how someone is feeling. 

Have the students come up with words that indicate feelings. Then write new words for feelings based off of the ones that the students provided. 

Introduce new vocabulary on the chalkboard that elaborates on types of feelings. Ask students to draw pictures and then write the new vocabulary word that goes with the emotion they drew. Have the students explain one-on-one what that face/picture means.  

Use the app to do more activities with the students to enhance understanding. These activities will be done while I am checking the students pictures and having conversations with them.

For homework have the students journal feelings they have before class the next day. Review the journal and discuss with the students. 

Student Instructions

Begin by drawing a picture of an emotion you feel. Describe that emotion with the words I have written on the board. Explain what your picture is showing when I come to you. While you wait choose two activities to complete on the "iTouchiLearn Feelings" app. We will then discuss any new words you don't understand as a class. 

For homework complete a journal of the feelings you have after class. Also, pay attention to the feelings of those around you. Try and figure out how they feel without asking. We will turn these in tomorrow morning during class.
