How Do You Like to Show Joy?
Invite children to examine different ways to practice being joyful with this fun and challenging worksheet.
To play simply fill in a word or phrase for each letter of the alphabet that illustrates a way to express joy. Learners are encouraged to write down different ways that they can show joy to others. Some examples could include, H—hang a banner, I—initiate a hug, J—jump for joy, etc.
Children can work alone or in teams, and can track who gives the most examples or play for points using the point gauge below. You can score sheets for fun or learner challenges based on how many words are found. Just follow this simple point scale based on words beginning with the following letters:
A-Z Sheets Point Scale
