Teaching Mood? You Need This Video Now.

What better way to start off October than with our delightfully creepy play based on W.W. Jacobs’s classic short story, The Monkey’s Paw? It’s full of rich description, figurative language, and chilling irony. And the best part? We have the perfect skills-based video to transform the play into a fantastic lesson on mood. The video’s interactive and fun approach to this tricky skill will delight and engage your whole class.



If you want to go deeper, have students make their own mood videos, using ours as a model.

After watching the video and reading the play, students can flex their mood muscles with our Core Skills: Mood activity sheet. For extra support, don’t miss our “Identifying Mood” and  “Mood Words” reference sheets.
