Emotions Vocabulary: Adjectives to Describe Personality

Our emotions always change in life. They’re different day to day. So that’s why we have to have a good bank of emotions vocabulary.

In pairs, place a pin in the center of the chart and spin it. The pin will point to a specific emotion. Have you ever felt that emotion? When would you feel this emotion in your life? Discuss with your partner.

Of all worksheets, this is the most in-depth vocabulary for emotions. Because students always need help explaining how they feel, their emotions vocabulary should significantly increase with this activity.
