This is an emotion version of Duck, Duck, Goose.


  • Tell the homeroom teacher that you need to use an open space during your class.


  1. Students sit in a circle.
  2. One kid walks around the outside of the circle tapping each kid on the head and saying happy, happy, happy, happy,….
  3. When the kid eventually taps someone on the head and says, “SAD!”
  4. The sitting kid must stand up, run around the outside of the circle and return to his seat before the standing kid can do the same.
  5. Kids must run in the opposite direction.


  • Sitting kid never wins so everybody gets a turn. Change emotions when kids have mastered saying each new emotion.
