Objective: students identify and imitate simple emotions.

Students identify and imitate simple emotions in beginning simple exercises. Next, they create a scene, using the body, to communicate an emotion through imitative action (part of the first grade objectives). Before working with the children, review our side coaching tips to encourage them to "be real." This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the First Grade Curriculum and can be used for Kindergarten.

First Grade Drama Journal: Emotions

To maximize student achievement, download this drama journal for students to use as reflection or formative assessment. For each lesson in the curriculum, we have created a corresponding journal page for your students. A drama journal allows participants to reflect on their learning and artistic growth (metacognition). It also allows you, the teacher, to see how students are using the drama vocabulary, thinking about big ideas, and perceiving their own strengths and weaknesses. If you use the journal for assessment and would like more assessment tools, visit our First Grade Curriculum
