Don’t Be An Angry Bird: Free Printables

I have been working on some printables to go with our angry bird/ anger management lesson (read more about it here) and thought I would share them with you all! I am SO thankful for all those that have left comments, sent me emails, and pinned this idea. It means so much to me. I just love it when I can share something that inspires and helps others. In a silly way I feel like a teacher again, with the world as my classroom…. cheesy, I know. But that’s just who I am! ;)
Clicking on the printable book picture will take you to our site’s wiki, where you can download each of the four pages. This is not designed to be a worksheet for a child to fill out on their own. Read the book with your child, and discuss the questions on each of the page. The goal of this book is to help your child UNDERSTAND their anger and learn some appropriate strategies to DEAL with it.

To download the posters, just click on the picture. For a black and white version, or the download isn’t working, check out our Angry Bird page on our site’s wiki. And make sure you read our original Angry Bird post to learn more about each of the angry birds and their role in helping kids understand and deal with their anger.

I hope these help you deal with your little angry birds at home! Don’t forget to comment and let me know how this is working out for you!
Happy Teaching!

    Wow, this is such a great idea! Emotional learning and growth is sometimes underrepresented in curriculums, and the way you put it in the context of Angry Birds is really creative. :)

    I know you visited my blog from time to time, so I also just wanted to let you know that it’s shifted its focus a bit. I’m now focusing on gathering great, interesting articles and news stories while leaving behind all the negativity, politics, and gossip you see on most news sources. There’s a lot of interesting historical and scientific content, which I hope homeschoolers and educators will find useful.

    If you’d like to take a look, the link is in my name. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the new direction.

    Thanks!

    Thank you again for sharing this!! I have used your first post of angry birds anger management with my social skills group. I posted a reply to your last blog post! :) I have been continuing to use it and I was so excited to see those visuals you made. I had made my own, but yours are way cuter!! I shrank the images and now my students can use them as visual reminders for their cool down strategies! I linked your blog to my post!
    Thanks again!
    Check out my most recent blog post about how I am incorporating this into my classroom.

    This is brilliant! I am in Ottawa, Canada and I would love to use this and pass it on… Don’t worry… you are given full credit. Could I translate it to French – I teach grade 2 French Immersion and I know my kids would understand it and would be able to put it into practice.

    Thank you for your creativity and generosity!

    Hi,
    This is a very creative tool. Are there any copyright issues to be concerned about when using these materials?

    I have only just found my way to your site and have to say this is awesome, my little man is adopted and didn’t have the greatest start to life and sometimes his dark and grims get the better of him. This is something he really associates with and colouring it in and thinking about then writing his responses has mean’t he has taken the messages in more than if we just tell him for the 40,000 time – Thank you..

    My son is a kindergartener and not reacting well to frustration at school. “Don’t be an angry bird” really spoke to him. I am grateful that you were so creative to put this together. We were able to talk about his actions, break it down, and how to calm himself. It worked for him. One day he came home from school and said he picked up the lego he threw and found a bird’s nest. Thank you.

    I also wanted to add that we used your printable book and posters with two picture books – Cool Down and Work Through Anger by Cheri Meiners and I Just Don’t like the Sound of No! by Julia Cook. Again, I can’t thank you enough!
