Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?
This beautifully illustrated worksheet asks students to describe some recent events or things they’ve seen that made them happy. Was it a sunset? A nice meal? Something kind that someone did? Students can draw, respond in a short writing, or discuss it with a partner.
Use it as a filler activity, a do-now, or as a brain break. Or make it part of a pre-writing for a narrative essay describing what filled them with joy. Or ask them to fictionalize it and write a short story or drama. The worksheet is also a great way to promote Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) as students think about what makes them happy.
Each of these original worksheets from the 60 Positive Activities for Kids activities are extremely flexible and adaptable to fit your classroom! Students can respond in writing, in discussion, or by drawing. Younger learners (or lower-level ESL/EFL students) might start with a drawing, then label it. After that, they can tell their partner about their answer, before doing a short writing of a sentence or two. Older or more advanced students might start with drawings and notes, and move straight to a paragraph, which they can then read or present to the class!
They’re easy to fit into a writing class, English class, creative play time, or even an after-school program, preschool, nursery school, kindergarten, or homeschooling situation.
