Look at the picture of Amir (open the worksheet underneath). Discuss his character before he met Lubna. Think of words that best describe his feelings: upset, afraid, lonely, ill, scared, unsure.  

Now look at the picture of Amir with Lubna.  Think of  words that best describe his feelings now: positive, happy, content, smiling. Try not use words such as 'sad' or 'happy'. Encourage children to use different synonyms for sad and happy. If needed tell children new synonyms and explain meaning.

Print worksheet which is best suited to your child’s ability.
