Here is a book Mrs Gayle found at the Mobile Library. In the story the little girl is in a bad mood because she can’t have an ice cream. The ‘bad mood’ is depicted by a cloud following over her head. Throughout the story the ‘bad mood cloud’ shifts onto other people.
It illustrates well how being in a bad mood can affect other people around you. We had a talk about what ‘being in bad mood’ means and talked about things that could happen, or have happened, to put us in a bad mood. Learning to identify and label feelings is important learning.
