What can you do when your feelings get the best of you?
The students at Sunnyvale Elementary carry a lot in their backpacks – including some things you can’t see quite so well, like big feelings and confusing emotions.
Today, one fiery red book keeps spilling out and exploding onto everyone: ANGER! It’s time for the kids to use their best detective skills to figure out what’s underneath those angry feelings.
Ana feels HURT when her friends don’t play fair.
Ben feels EMBARRASSED when he makes a mistake.
Grace feels DIFFERENT when nobody chooses her for their team.
When our feelings get the best of us, we need to do our best with our feelings. Become a backpack detective like Ana, Ben, and Grace! Just remember to…
Stop when I’m furious.
Pause and be curious.
What is underneath the mad?
Am I lonely, stressed, or sad?
