Who doesn’t love emojis? We love to use them in texts or messages, but they can also be used in the classroom, for games, crafts, brain breaks, and as fun accessories and prizes.

Have students stand in a circle. Choose an emoji ball to start with (ex. happy). Toss it to one student. They will share something that would make them happy and why. Then that student will toss it to another student and then they also share. After a few students share, take that ball out and toss in another. Do this for each emotion to help kids understand the meaning of each one.
