Singing with 2 " voices" was difficult but with some practice we were able to perform it better.

Circle of emotions: passing emotions on face in circle;
Anger: some of the kids started to laugh and they had difficulties passing the "angry face."
"Laughing face": they loved it
Then emotion circle; "change"
You Can change the emotion you received
Introduction of Indi
Indi showed 4 emotions
Indi played an angry face to M., who just joined the group, and he wasnt understanding, and was scared and impressed. We tried to reassure him.
The Kids were all looking and listening very carefully. They seemed to be impressed.
Indi then displayed sadness.
Kids were really interested, they liked joining. Indi asked who wanted to act it out.
Indi explained the feelings in the body and the breathing process
J tried to act sadness: she focused on a sad event and then was very intense, until she was crying. She was really sad because she was not selected in the team going to Brazil. (Susanne believe this could be seen as her real emotion instead of the act of performing)
Then I tried acting pretending to be sad.... She didn't show too much facial expression... she said she was disturbed in her focusing by the other kids chit-chat.
Indi explained a bit regarding the body-language: pointing with the finger when angry, open body when happy, closing when being shy.
M and M were not listening too much.
J performed again: she was less expressive, compared to the first small play.
Circle; the kids imitated Indi: shy, impatient, angry, annoyed.
We freely divided the kids in groups.
They were told to make a drama on anger, like they did last week.
First they did a rehearsal.

They really liked and even yelled.
Indi talked about how to act in an angry way, showing the poster with the body shape on which they had written where they were feeling the anger one week ago.
D gets pain in belly when Angry.
E gets pain in His heart.
I in her head.
Em in her hand; She wants to hit.
Nanda; wants to hit
Depending on where you feel the emotion, is your behavior: if you wish to stamp with your feet, or squeeze something in your hand.
Explained how to express your emotions: could be yelling, hitting the box-ball, hitting pillow...
J explained that she wanted to kick and subsequently she felt sick and she run throughout the room and she finally cried.
