Part 3: Anger/Frustration
Anh’s Anger – I’ve used this book with K-3rd grade, though the main character is certainly more like 4. Great use of externalizing a feeling, this book teaches deep breathing as a way to manage anger while also showing that anger itself isn’t bad.
As I mentioned before, this book is gold. For anger, frustration, or disappointment – I love this book. It’s also a great segue into self-talk. While the book only really discusses one coping skill (telling yourself “no biggy”), part of its excellence is that students really seem to remember and use this.
