Detailed Goal: Managing Frustration
Watch, Play, Learn SEL Block: Kaki is Frustrated
Basma and Jad cloud watch, but each time one spots an animal shape in the clouds, the wind changes the image before the other can see. Chicken interrupts with a big feelings alert - it's their friend Kaki! Kaki is drawing a picture on the sidewalk, but the wind keeps blowing leaves over his artwork and he doesn't want to draw anymore. Basma, Jad, and Chicken help Kaki to identify his emotion as "frustration" and help him feel better by "belly breathing." Later Basma and Jad resume their cloud watching game, but the wind continues to change the animal shape before the other can see. After helping Kaki, Basma and Jad are able to identify that they are feeling "frustrated" and use the "belly breathing" method they learned to calm down.
