This companion lesson to the story “When Miles Got Mad” by Abbie Schiller and Samantha Counter teaches students about common triggers to anger, how anger and calm look and feel in our bodies, and how to calm down. Digital for Google Slides™, PowerPoint, and printable activities are included for both in-person and digital learning.
⭐ THIS RESOURCE INCLUDES:
✅ Digital for Google Slides™ presentation that summarizes the story, describes the physical signs of anger and calm, reviews 10 common anger triggers, and teaches 13 calm down strategies. Fillable text boxes and an interactive drag-and-drop activity are included.
✅ PowerPoint version of the presentation that teaches the same material but offers opportunities for students to turn-and-talk with a partner.
✅ Printable Calm Down Lap Book that includes color, cut, and paste activities for exploring anger and learning coping skills. Both a boy and a girl version of the book are offered.
✅ Document that shows how the lesson is aligned to ASCA Mindsets & Behaviors.
✂️ I recommend having a copy of the story When Miles Got Mad available to read to students.
