I’m a big fan of using picture books in my classroom guidance lessons, and have two favorites that illustrate how bad moods can be contagious and how our words impact those around us. The two books are ANDREW'S ANGRY WORDS by Dorothea Lachner, and THE BAD MOOD by Moritz Petz.

Neither book is needed to use these worksheets—you can use any book or video that has the same message.

These pages are intended for use in one or two classroom lessons or group sessions. You choose which worksheet and anchor chart fit the ability level of the group. You may be able to go a little younger or a little older, but I think they're most appropriate for grades 2-4.

Included are:

-1 worksheet where students draw a line from an "angry words" speech bubble to one which shows a kinder way of saying the same thing (plus answer key)

-1 worksheet with the same "angry word" speech bubbles, but where students must write in their ideas for a kinder way to say it

-1 "angry words" / "kind words" t-chart

-1 "kind words" anchor chart

-1 "angry words" anchor chart

-8 scenarios, where you can ask students to rephrase the angry or rude words
