This is a variation on your already posted "Moods:
and you feel..." bulletin board. Each resident
had a tag with her name on it that she could move
under her mood for the day. The bulletin board also
had creative suggestions for what residents could
do for each mood. This was my most popular bulletin
*computer and printer (or marker if you want to do
it by hand)
*adhesive poster putty
I drew and cut out emotion faces for angry, stressed,
energized, sad, nirvana, happy, grouchy, in love,
tired, and silly. For each emotion, I also had an
activity. For example, next to "energized,"
I had a sheet where residents could sign up to buddy
up with each other to go to the rec center and for
the "in love" part, I drew a tree where
residents could "carve" their initials.
(I've attached the file
that I printed with an activity for each
emotion except "in love," which was the
tree.) Each resident had a slip of paper with her
name on it and a
piece of poster putty on the back so that she could
move her name to whichever emotion she felt without
messing up the bulletin board paper.
Things to consider:
My residents LOVED this board. They even added a category:
"Ready for Christmas Break!"
