Miles Got Mad by Ruby Studio
This resource uses the book Miles Got Mad by Ruby Studio which is about a boy named Miles who got mad when his little brother broke his toy. As his anger gets bigger, Miles looks in the mirror and sees a furry red monster staring back at him. Miles is able to see what his mad looks like and he doesn’t like it. He uses his words to make the monster smaller and it eventually goes away. This book does a great job explaining how anger looks and how to use words to calm your thoughts, feelings, and actions. It is a great way to teach self-regulation to all young students.to explore a variety of feelings in a fun and vibrant way. The book explores what might make you sad, scared, happy or excited. It also helps children explore what they might do when they have those feelings. This is a great book for helping students recognize feelings and how their body might feel when they have them.
Using children's picture books to teach social skills is an excellent way to engage students in topics they need to learn or practice. Many children’s picture books are easily available and often familiar to students. Most students (even older ones) enjoy stories read to them and are more motivated to learn the concepts than through direct teaching. Because stores are fun and pleasurable for many children, being read to feels like a leisure activity during class time. Students also tend to relate the emotions of the characters and can easily provide discussion into how they should think, feel, or act.
