Change this to "How do you think the character feels?" and hang in story corner to facilitate discussions. Might help students elaborate a little on the "good", "bad" and "sad" answers that sometimes lean on. At the bottom, add a "why do you think that" or a "how do you know" to help with inferencing.
This is part of the free editing set from First Grade Wow. For kindergarten, I use it to show what they can do (smiley face in the check box) and what their newest personal challenge is (I highlight the check box). They keep it in their writing folders. It helps differentiate learning and gives each student focus. There are many other useful pages in the packet, too. All free!
FREE I used these cards in a pocket chart and give each child a mini popsicle stick with their name on it. They take turns going up and putting their stick in front of the smiley face that corresponds to how they feel, using a complete sentence as they do so: "I feel happy because or "I feel sad because my favorite toy broke." etc.
