    Students explore the inquiry question by considering how they can express themselves and their feelings through oral language, body language, movement, music, and art. Opportunities for oral language activities and playful learning are intermingled throughout the unit as students discuss their feelings and how they express themselves, create art, sing songs, move like animals, and draw themselves being happy. Working with Words lessons accompany each shared reading text and a text-type study invites student to write a list poem about what makes them happy.
