Story of the Anger Backpack (You can also ask the teacher or a person with good handwriting (4th & 5Th) to be the secretary)
I need a volunteer.

Are you a stay mad or get over it kid?

Well for this story I need you to be a stay mad kid. Every time I ask if you are going to stay mad or get over it- you say stay mad.
(Have student put on Backpack.) Everyone carries an invisible backpack around on their back and they can carry their anger with them.

This is the story of (Child’s name). One day she came to school and as they were lining up someone pushed her out of line. She got MAD.

Are you going to stay mad or get over it? (Stay mad)

(Put a bag of anger in her backpack)

They went into class and the teacher was collecting homework, but you forgot your homework. The teacher said fine, you can do it at recess. And you felt MAD.

Are you going to stay mad or get over it? (stay mad)

(Put a bag of anger in her backpack)

Recess time came and your friends went to recess, when they came back in they were smiling cause they had fun at recess. You got MAD.

Are you going to stay mad or get over it? (Stay mad)

(Put a bag of anger in her backpack

You went home after school and your favorite show was cancelled.

Are you going to stay mad or get over it? (Stay mad)

(Put a bag of anger in her backpack)

That night Dad said there was a change of plans and the family couldn’t go out for pizza.

You got MAD.

Are you going to stay mad or get over it? (Stay mad)

(Put a bag of anger in her backpack)
Then later your brother was bugging you. You got MAD.

Are you going to stay mad or get over it? (Stay mad)

(Put a bag of anger in her backpack)
Is it getting heavy? Are you going to have much fun carrying all that mad around? It will be hard to play and hard to sleep.

Lucky for you your friends know a lot of good ways to get over it.


And this is the time I need the secretary’s help.

What’s one way? (Call on a student) Secretary, write that one down.

Will that work for you? (Yes- remove a bag of anger; No- call on someone else)

(Continue calling on class, ask teacher for one that works for him, supply your own if class runs out, till backpack is empty. Keep checking with the secretary to make sure the ideas are written down.)

Does it feel better with an empty backpack?

Is it easier to be happy when your backpack is empty or full?

So you choose: will you be a stay mad kid or a get over it kid?

Thank you to our secretary. Where would be a good spot to hang this in the room where everyone can see it?

(Usually everyone wants to see how heavy the backpack is, so they can stand in a circle and pass the backpack.)
