Learners participate in a game to help them recognize feelings and emotions.
Your feelings and emotions put you in a mood.
Say: I will act out some feelings and emotions that affect my mood. (Demonstrate feelings and emotions from mood cards, such as grumpy, excited, angry, afraid, happy, worried, etc.)
Everyone has different feelings and emotions. Sometimes you might feel grumpy. Sometimes you might feel angry, happy, worried, or even silly! Feelings put you in a mood, and your mood influences your choices.
Your mood is either “I will” ("I will make a fit choice.") or “I won’t” ("I won’t make a fit choice.").
The number one thing you need to know is that everyone has different feelings and emotions throughout each day. If you can recognize your feelings and emotions, you can manage your mood and make fit choices.
Today’s activity will help you identify different feelings and emotions that affect your mood.

A: Feelings put you in an “I will” or “I won’t” mood.
Q: How many words do you know that tell about feelings and emotions?

Q: What feelings and emotions can put you in an “I won’t” mood? What feelings and emotions put you in an “I will” mood?
