Lesson Plan Procedures and Tips

Although you can simply start this lesson up and teach it without much prep, here's a sample lesson plan you can use to have a blast in your class using just this lesson software.  To add more to your lesson tho, I recommend downloading the provided flashcards and adding some flashcard games to the class.  It's not necessary but it helps add even more fun to your class by getting students moving around more.

New Content Teaching

1. Lesson Introduction and Pre-Teaching

Start the lesson by using the new words section of the lesson software.  You can reveal the feelings one by one to your students or have them choose a picture to reveal in a more discovery based learning process.

When a feeling has been revealed, press it to focus on that picture.  Teach students the new word and navigate back to the new word screen.  Make sure to use TPR when students are talking about the feelings they are easy and fun to act out. When returning to the new words introduction page, allow students to say all of the feelings that they have learned so far.  After all 8 words have been learned, go to the Listen and Touch activity.

2. Feelings Listen and Touch (Practice Activity)

In this reinforcement activity, you say a feeling and a student should touch that picture on the board.  When they touch it, they should say the name and act it out.  Other students can say and do the action as well.  Do this several times at a pace your students can handle. 

If your students are capable, other students in the class can also call out feelings that the active student should touch and say.

3. Blast Off (Practice Activity)

Blast Off can be found in the Practice section of the software.

In Blast Off, touch a feeling picture and it will start flashing.  Say a yes or a no sentence or question about it that your students would understand.  If the answer to the question is YES, they jump.  If it is NO, they sit down.

Here are some example sentences & questions you might use (depending on student level):

  • Is it/he/she happy?

  • It/He/She is happy.

  • Are you scared? (In this case, students should stand or sit if it applies to them right then).

  • I am not happy.

To make the activity even more fun, you can rapidly ask questions and students can jump and sit pretty fast.

4. Even More Practice! (Optional)

At this point, you have a lot of different practice activities to choose from.  Here are some suggestions:

  • Coloring (practice):  Say a feeling and a color.  Students should color the picture as you say.

  • Match All  (practice): Using the provided pictures you can say quite a few different sentences and students must match the pictures accordingly.  "Dad is happy.."  "The dog is angry."

  • Pronoun Practice (practice): You are shown three different pictures at the top of the screen and the feelings at the bottom.  Say sentences using the pronouns and the different feelings that have been taught.  "He is angry.  She is happy.  It is hungry."  Students must drag the feeling pictures to the correct spot

  • Flashcard Games: This can also a great time to play some flashcard games.

5. Lesson Presentation

This lesson talks about feelings in context.  It uses various vocabulary that has been taught prior to this lesson such as family members and animals.

Some tips about lesson presentation:

  • Talk about the pictures first.  "What do you see?" "Who is it?" "How is he?" Guide students to talk about the pictures and use whatever related content you've learned in the past to talk about them. 

  • If your students can read,  guide your students together using your finger.

  • If students can't read, instruct them to listen as you do so.  They can repeat after you.  Do this a few times.

  • After reading, ask a follow up question such as "Who is this?" "How is he?" "Is it sad?"

  • Repeat the above steps for all pages until you reach the final page.

  • Final Page: Students should talk about how they feel.

7. Wind Down and Review

Depending on the time left, it's time to wind down the lesson, review, and award points/rewards/etc.  Here are a couple options you have:

  • Flashcard review: Hold up flashcards and have students shout out the feelings.  Encourage students to act out the feeling's TPR when they say it.

  • Use the Review section of the software.
