Stories and activities to help children understand anger The ABC's of Anger leads children to discovery! It contains easy-to-read stories involving some aspect of the theme "anger." It provides children with an awareness of differing degrees of anger and helps them explore choices for responding when they are anger. Teaches constructive coping skills to handle destructive feelings. Teaches the difference between feelings of anger and how we act out those feelings.

Arms the child with coping skills for unexpected feelings, allowing him/her to win the battle against anger. Appeals to the visual learner with delightful artwork, allowing the presenter to reach children who might otherwise be missed. Each story begins with a letter of the alphabet - the first letter of both an animal's name and its behavior. A picture and short story about the character follows as well as a definition of the characteristic being described. These pictures and stories may be photocopied and distributed for younger children to color and for older students to add cartoon speech balloons. The lesson the facing page includes questions that the teacher may use to initiate discussion. It is hoped, however, that student responses and questions will lead to a more personalized dialogue with the teacher acting as a discussion facilitator. Follow-up activities conclude each lesson, and these, too may be adapted to suit the needs of the class. A resource chapter at the end of the book further explains the theme words and provides additional questions for classroom use. The stories may be read separately or can be combined into themes, such as trigger words, anger intensity words, solution words, empowering words, and feeling words. The characters in the stories are designed to help students make connections between their own actions and feelings as well as those that they may experience in other children and adults. Ray hopes that this book will challenge children's thinking and provide a nonthreatening means for them to work through feelings, behaviors, and emotions in a beneficial and enjoyable way."
Zach and his family go to the beach, but Zach is having a lousy day. First, he dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. Then his best friend went to someone else’s birthday party instead of joining him. But most frustrating of all, he can’t get his kite to fly! Zach kicks sand, yells angry words, and asks his dad if they can just go home now. Instead, his dad teaches him a simple, three-step approach to get a handle on frustration and find a way to enjoy himself even when things aren’t going his way: 1) name it (why are you frustrated?); 2) tame it (self-regulation exercises such as deep breathing or visualization); 3) reframe it (change your thoughts to change your feelings). The three-point strategy is presented as the three corners of a triangle and is illustrated as the corners of Zach’s kite. Easy to understand and easy to remember. Zach Rules Series Zach struggles with social issues like getting along, handling frustrations, making mistakes, and other everyday problems typical of young kids. Each book in the Zach Rules series presents a single, simple storyline involving one such problem. As each story develops, Zach and readers learn straightforward tools for coping with their struggles and building stronger relationships now and in the future.
