Expressing Emotions and Feelings Slides and Activities

It’s human nature to express and share how we are feeling.. One of the most common questions in any language is ‘How are you?’ which we use because we want to tell people how we feel and because we want to know how other people are feeling.If you work with ESL students (English as a Second Language students), then one of your primary mandates is to help them communicate well in English. There are many different categories of words that can help with this, but learning to talk about feelings and emotions is perhaps one of the most significant things that children can master in order to make themselves known and understood. After all, when you can describe a feeling or understand what someone else is feeling, you can solicit and grant empathy, express your inner self, and deal better with challenges the world presents. This lesson reviews some good vocabulary words for feelings and emotions and then offers games and activities for teaching students these words.
