Students Can Draw and Describe Their Feelings—and Teachers Can Make Their Projects Into a Classroom Library Feelings Book
Sometimes students can feel down like a Pout-Pout Fish. As a teacher, understanding what makes students feel the dreary-wearies is especially important—and so is knowing what makes them happy.
After reading the catchy and mood-lifting picture book The Pout-Pout Fish, written by Deborah Diesen and illustrated by Dan Hanna, aloud to your class, download the free printable “Feelings Check-In” activity sheet.
Collect your students’ activity sheets in a Pout-Pout Feelings book! Students can look at the book all year round to remind them of what makes their classmates feel sad and happy.
