Students Learn How Glassman and Soda Pop Head Are Similar

Good Afternoon:

This week the younger students learned how Soda Pop Head (by Julia Cook) and Glassman have a hard time controlling their tempers and as a result other kids really do not want to play with them because they cannot predict their behavior. Students practiced relaxation strategies like; Tighten and Release, Slow Deep Breaths, and the Push, Pull, Dangle to help them deal with their excess energy when angry or frustrated. Ask your child to show you these strategies at home. Continue to model effective strategies when you, yourself are frustrated.    screen-shot-2016-10-21-at-2-08-17-pm
