Today we are going to think about
How we feel on the inside, often shows on the outside...
As Oliver Jeffers drew the illustrations in this book,
he was able to show us how some of the characters were feeling by the way he drew them.
Have a look at the page (well a bit of a page) that I have included below
and see whether you can tell how the characters are feeling.
It is a little tricky, and your grown-up may need to talk about this with you.
I've also added some photographs of real people.
Can you tell how they are feeling from their faces?
Can you imagine what they might be thinking?
What might they be saying?
For the page for your book today I would like you to think about emotions.
Choose some of the emotions and draw a face to show that emotion
and give your person a thought bubble or a speech bubble to say how they are feeling.
You might want to think of words that mean the same thing, but are more interesting
- sad, miserable, upset etc
and choose which one you want to use in your writing.
Below are some examples of the kind of thing you might want to do - but these are just ideas!
I suggest that when you write the sentence you write
I am ... or I feel...
because the children should be able to sound these words out,
and in Lions and Tigers we learn how to write the tricky word 'I'.
