Fantasy Writing Warm-Up
For this lesson, students will be presented with a one, or a variety of pictures to choose from (teacher’s choice). These pictures should be random, fun, and something students could write a story about. Students can be prompted to write a sentence, a paragraph, or a paper. It all depends on teacher preference and students ability. An example of a student view is below. This is a great writing warm up that allows students to express themselves.

Focus on Feelings
A year like this, it is important for us teachers and our students to recognize and acknowledge our feelings. This lesson builds upon our students social emotional skills and allows them to compare how body language can be affected when we are feeling a certain way such as happy or sad. This lesson is relevant for all students as we all have feelings. The students view is presented below. Any questions may be answer via. discussion or writing.

What do you do when you’re happy?
What do you do when you’re sad?
