Content Knowledge
 What content knowledge do you possess in this area?
    The teacher must know how to take a picture and know how to
      use PowerPoint. The teacher must also think of different kinds of
      emotions in case the class has difficulty with coming up with
      various emotions.
 How did you prepare for understanding the content of this lesson?
    I prepared for understanding the content of this lesson by creating
     an emotions PowerPoint to serve as an example.
    Preparation
    Make sure your classroom computers have a word processor and
     Internet access.
    Make sure that all digital cameras are charged and working.
Activities                                                                                                                               Time
Read Today I Feel Silly & Other Moods That Make My Day to the students. As we read the story as a class I will have my students          10 minutes
look at the expressions on the little girl’s face. I will then have the students state how they feel or think the girl feels when they
make that face.

Have the students come up with different emotions that the story talked about and state how you feel with each emotion and               5 minutes
things that make you feel this way. Write the emotions that the students come up with on the board. Additionally, show a
picture of the Today I feel:

State to the students that today in groups you will be taking pictures of four different emotions that will be given to you on a         5 minutes
piece of paper. You will need to take a picture of each emotion and write two sentences with correct punctuation about each

Here is an example from the story:
“Today I am sad; my mood's heavy and gray.
There's a frown on my face and it's been there all day.
My best friend and I had a really big fight.
She said that I tattled and I know that she's right.”

Students will take a picture of them feeling sad. They can then write a sentence like the one below:
I feel sad when my friend does not listen to what I say. I feel that no one in the world cares about me and I just want someone
there to cheer me up.

Show students the example PowerPoint that you made dealing with emotions.                                                                5 minutes

Show students how to take pictures with a digital camera and insert them into a PowerPoint. Students will break up into groups           30
and take the pictures and create a PowerPoint.                                                                                           minutes

 Today I Feel Silly & Other Moods That Make My
  Day by Jamie Lee Curtis
 White board
 Dry erase marker
 Digital camera and uploading cord
 Computer with PowerPoint, scanner, and
  Internet connection

What have I chosen these
 I have chosen these materials, because I feel
  that many students in the classroom are
  visual learners and also learn by writing the
  words and drawing a picture of the definition.
 Accommodations
   Place students in a group where their partners are
    encouraging and helpful.
   Extra time on assignments if needed.

Tips for Taking Good Photos

 Use a flash when you have very little light.
 Take multiple pictures because most likely
  one of the pictures will turn out.
 Try to have bright light sources behind you
  (e.g. the sun). Make sure your shadow is not
  in the picture frame.
 Use a fast shutter speed when taking pictures
  for emotions.
