Guide the children to turn unacceptable behaviors into positive behaviors by turning the sad face into a happy face.
Print out the happy and sad face pattern using the link below. Cut out the faces and laminate the patterns. Attach a wide craft stick or a paint stick to the back of the happy face using hot glue, reinforce the stick with tape.
Then hot glue the back side of the sad face to the stick. Line up the two faces, so you can use the pattern as a paddle – to change from sad to happy.
For additional ideas on how to use the pattern please see my Back to School Lesson Plan. Use the faces with the activity on the page titled: “Feelings”
