We read Grumpy Cat and then made a text to self connection in writing. We wrote The cat was grumpy because... I get grumpy when... and then they told about how they would make the cat feel better. I think it's funny to hear about what makes them grumpy:) We drew a cat face on black and then I glued over their drawing. We let it dry and the next day used chalk to color him in. I laminated them because the chalk is so messy and smears easily.
You can follow up with a lesson about feelings.
