Through a read aloud, Jennifer Hawkins has her students identify and describe the feelings of fictional characters. Jennifer reads the book No David and asks her students to hold up face puppets that show the emotions of the characters in the book. Notice how this lesson helps students to develop empathy. #ece #preK
