        Mad Feelings | Daniel Tiger: Life's Little Lessons

        By using stories and videos showing familiar PBS KIDS characters working through their own mad feelings, you can provide strategies that children can build on as they grow and learn and develop the self-control needed to handle frustrating situations appropriately.

        In this set of resources, we will focus on how you can help children work on developing self-control, listening carefully and using strategies to calm down when they feel mad.

        Watch the videos about Mad Feelings and think about how you could use them as part of the classroom activity or throughout the year as children develop strategies for dealing with mad feelings. 

        Explore the topic of Mad Feelings in your classroom using the Teacher Tips and Classroom Activity.

        Share the Family Activity document with the families of your students, so they can continue the conversation at home.
