I have visited each classroom to do a lesson on dealing with anger appropriately. Take a look at the power point!
We discussed what it "feels" like to be angry and good strategies to use when feeling mad or angry. Some of the strategies discussed that you will see in the power point are:
1. Going to your birds nest to take a break. Some good break spots at home are their bedrooms, swing set, basement etc. At school we practiced asking the teacher to take a break, get a drink or come talk to Me.
2. Balloon Bird Breathing: taking at least three deep breaths and trying to relax our whole body from our head to our toes. To take a balloon bird breath, you need to breathe in like you're smelling a flower and breath out like you're blowing out your birthday candles.
3. Is to always use your words when you are feeling angry, not your bodies.
If you have any questions about this lesson, I would be happy to chat about it :)
