Babeck Early Childhood Center Classroom Spotlight

Mrs. White's class had a lesson with Ms. Gill, Babeck Counselor, on anger. Her lesson was to teach students on how to recognize anger both within themselves and in others. Students listened to the book, "When Sophie Gets Angry, Really, Really Angry" and then picked out parts in the story of when Sophie got angry and how she responded to those times. The lesson culminated with the students drawing a monster and giving the monster characteristics of being angry. The class then came back together to discuss what the students drew and also to discuss ways to help themselves and others when they get angry.
