This pack contains six posters illustrating different ways a writer can show a character’s feelings instead of telling the reader how that character is feeling.

Each poster uses an arresting image. These are accompanied by text boxes or word balloons which include example sentences to illustrate the skill being taught.

Blank balloon templates enable you to use the children’s own ideas and add to the existing examples, and pupil worksheets can be independently completed.

Feelings covered are:

  • Angry
  • Sad
  • Scared
  • Worried
  • Shy
  • Happy
  • Excited
