A quick and easy way to practice emotions

This year learned emotions and how to answer the question ¿Cómo estás?  Even though we have moved on we still practice our emotions when we sing. For example, when we do our calendar routine we sing a quick song about the days of the week from Basho & Friends. (The video is 4 minutes long so once students know the tune we just sing it acappella.)

Before we start I ask one student ¿Cómo estás? If they answer Estoy bien then we sing with big smiles. If they answer Estoy cansado then we sing with lots of big yawns. We sing Estoy enojado with angry voices and some foot stomping. The great thing is that it works for any song you might be using in class and you are constantly reviewing emotions.
