Free Downloadable Social-Emotional Activity to Accompany Wishes
by Alana Pedalino
The family in Wishes experiences many emotions—including hope, sorrow, fear, and love—on their ocean voyage from Vietnam to Hong Kong.
After reading the beautifully illustrated and powerfully poetic Book of the Week by Mượn Thị Văn, illustrated by Victo Ngai, with your class, download this free printable “Draw a Mood Picture” activity sheet. Try it out in your classroom to help students make social-emotional connections by exploring the many emotions experienced by the family in the story.
This activity sheet was inspired by third grade teacher Kimberly Carthans’s Book Talks video. Check it out for more tips on using Wishes with your students!
