Anger Management for Kids? Look No Further Than Our Managing Anger PowerPoint!

Mateo’s friends are going to the cinema to see the new superhero movie. When Mateo asks his mum if he can go, she says the movie is not appropriate and that he is not allowed to go with his friends. Mateo is the only one in his group of friends who is not allowed to see the movie.

How might Mateo be feeling?

If you suggested ‘angry’, you would be 100% correct!

Anger is a feeling we experience when we think that something is wrong, hard or unfair. It is a normal human emotion that everybody experiences from time to time.

Sometimes, anger can develop out of other emotions such as frustration, sadness, disappointment, embarrassment or rejection.

It is vital that our children understand what anger actually is; how it affects our minds, bodies and actions; and how it can be managed with the right strategies. 

This PowerPoint presentation has been created by a team of dedicated educators to support you in teaching your students about how to manage their anger. It poses (and answers) the following questions:

  • How do I know I am feeling angry?
  • How does anger affect our thoughts?
  • How does anger affect our bodies?
  • How does anger affect our actions?
  • How can anger be managed?

Suggested Anger Management Strategies for Kids

If our students don’t know how to manage anger in an appropriate way, it can cause them to behave inappropriately. This is often referred to as an angry ‘outburst’. Thankfully, there are many strategies our students can use to manage anger when it arises. These strategies can help control negative thoughts and actions, and can decrease the physical effects that anger has on the body. This, in turn, can help avoid those angry outbursts!  

This PowerPoint explains the following anger management strategies in detail:

  • recognising your anger
  • stopping and counting to 10
  • implementing a ‘calm down’ plan
  • seeking the alternative viewpoint
  • achieving empathy
  • talking it out
  • choosing to let the anger go. 

Take Learning Further with ‘Turn and Talk’ Activities 

This PowerPoint includes collaborative ‘turn and talk’ activities that can be used to further support your students’ understanding of what anger is and how it can be managed.
