Looking for a great stress-buster, bell-ringer, brain-break, warmer, filler, or fast-finisher activity?

This beautiful, hand-illustrated drawing, writing, or discussion prompt asks students to create their own new emojis! Students love their emojis and know how to communicate with them effectively. Engage students and get them thinking about the kinds of attitudes and emotions they feel every day with this inventive and unique prompt.

Use it to teach emotion words to your ESL or EFL students. They can play a guess-the-emotion game with partners or in small groups or even match the vocabulary word to the picture. I like to write emotion words on the board and have students draw matching faces. Other students can then guess with fact goes with which emotion.

Or use it for Social Emotional Learning (SEL) as students illustrate feelings and/or label their partners’ drawings. Being able to recognize facial emotions and express emotions effectively is a key soft skill that some young learners may struggle with. Speech therapy and speech pathologist materials use similar worksheets to this one.


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.

Also available as a set of PowerPoints, easy to add to classroom or distance learning slide shows or as a paperback book, great for regular journaling!
