Help your little learners to handle stress!
Worry thoughts! We all have them. Through an exploration of picture books, videos, and activities, our students can learn how to tame those monkeys that pop up in our brains, telling us why we can't do the things we need to do and want to achieve. We have also included two different studio-recorded mp3 versions of the "Monkey" song written and produced by Lessia Bonn.
Try this fun unit and make those monkeys vanish!
