Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods That Make My Day

Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods That Make My Day by Jamie Lee Curtis is a picture book about a young girl experiencing many types of emotions.  Each page explains an emotion she is feeling and why. The emotions and moods range from silly, excited, and happy to sad, angry, and discouraged.  The book ends with saying that it is okay to have any of these feelings inside.  Today I Feel Silly is a great book for exploring all different kinds of feelings that students might have felt, but never knew what it was called.  Students could write about an emotion they have felt before and describe what it felt like.  In addition, teacher should integrate music with this lesson by associating musical instruments to specific emotions, like drums to angry and maracas to happy. The reading level for this book is 490L (2nd Grade) according to Lexile Leveling.
