Activity 12.3

Activity 12.3

Communicating feelings, needs, and emotions

The students will enquire about and express feelings, emotions, and needs.

Play clip 12.1a for the students to review how to express feelings.

Play clip 12.2a and hand out copies of the sentence patterns from the Unit 12 overview and have the students practise the patterns.

Then they work in pairs. Remind them that they can use sentence patterns and vocabulary from previous units as well, especially Unit 6. One student points to a face on worksheet 12.3 and expresses the feeling shown in NZSL. Here is an example of a dialogue pattern that the students could use:

MY MOTHER IX-she EXCITED

HAPPEN WHATwhq

TOMORROW MY SISTER BIRTHDAY

MY SISTER IX-she EXCITED IX-she

Now have the students focus on their comprehension of what is being communicated. Divide them into groups of five or six. Get one student in each group to draw a table with two columns and six rows on a piece of A4 paper, like this:

Feelings

Reasons

   
   
   
   
   
   

You could make this up and photocopy it for them beforehand if you wish.

Each student takes a turn to describe a feeling. The group responds by signing:

HAPPEN WHATwhq

The student responds by giving a reason. As each student describes the feeling, the other students view the response and write in English the described feeling and the reason for it. When all the students have had a turn, they confirm what they’ve written with the presenters.
