What others are saying...
“This is a great lesson for helping students understand that we sometimes show anger when we’re really feeling another feeling that’s less empowering/powerful and more vulnerable. In my opinion, it runs for a 30 minute lesson. The kids enjoyed it and a substitute teacher came up to me afterwards and was very impressed with the content. School counseling win! Thanks, The Responsive Counselor!”
“My second graders loved this! It made so much sense to them!”
“This resource is great for teaching children that what may seem like anger, may actually be something else. Great resource for helping children think deeper about how to care for their emotions properly by identifying underlying emotions.”
