I Get Angry

Time

  • 10 to 20 minutes

Materials

  • None

Directions

Talk about hypothetical situations, determining which of them make each of you angry. Examples could include someone borrowing a favorite toy without asking, going to get ice cream in the refrigerator and finding it is all gone, raising a hand in class and not getting called on.

Extensions

  • Talk about the fact that everyone gets angry and share things that make you angry.
  • Talk about acceptable and unacceptable reactions you have both seen.
  • Challenge the child to come up with exciting, frustrating, and scary situations and acceptable responses.
  • Find pictures in magazines to illustrate what you are talking about.
  • Cut out pictures of an angry face and a happy face and take turns pointing to them in response to the situational questions.
