Mrs. Pelzel’s Kindergartners Explore Their Feelings

Mrs. Rollans and Mrs. Pelzel at Blackland Prairie Elementary worked with her students to explore feelings. The students brainstormed different emotions, such as happy, angry, excited, and sad and what makes us feel those emotions. The students then opened a Google Presentation and were able to take a picture of themselves showing that emotion. They completed the sentence stem “____ makes me feel ____.” It was great to see the amazing faces showcasing silly, sad, and shy emotions. It was even better to see the authentic writing that was occurring. We learned that older brothers can make us feel silly and angry sometimes.The students were so excited to share and decided to print out their books so they could be shared with the whole school in the hallway. Mrs. Pelzel and I felt exhilarated to see the excitement during the lesson!
