Ready-to-Use Lessons for the Elementary Grades Everyone gets angry, and kids are no exception. ANGER is a powerful emotion that must be dealt with throughout life. Emotionally mature adults have learned to acknowledge and control ANGER, and to release it in healthy ways. Many children--particularly those who lack emotionally mature adult role models--require extra support and practice in order to develop ANGER-management skills.
Don't leave this process to chance or depend on temporary "band-aid" approaches. Provide direct, explicit instruction through fun activities involving movement, relaxation, coping techniques, role-plays, the arts, activity sheets, sharing circles, literature and more. With this practical, easy-to-use guide children learn to:
Identify angry feelings and understand ANGER as a normal emotionn
Accurately read "angry" body language and deal with ANGER in others
Identify situations that can create ANGER
Express ANGER in appropriate ways
Problem-solve situations that could lead to conflict
Replace negative with positive thinking/attitudes
