Emotions vocabulary worksheets

Here are some emotions vocabulary worksheets that are in a variety of difficulty levels. There are also a couple of emotions drawing worksheets that are a lot of fun for your classes.

If some of the vocabulary is too difficult for your students, describe things that make most people feel that way. You can also just show them your own facial expression for the emotions!

Once your class has completed them, it is a good idea to ask them what things make them feel each emotion. Ask them questions such as “What makes you feel angry” or “What food makes you feel ill”. Also, ask about their friends and family with questions such as ” Which emotions does your father most have?” or ” Which emotion describes your best friend?”.

The answers for the above worksheet should be –

Happy – Scared – Sleepy – Good

Exhausted – Sad – Sick – Cheeky

Naughty – Surprised – Angry – Bored

Relaxed – In Love – Silly – Worried
