Emotion Management

(Dealing with waiting)

This Topic Quest was designed for Mrs.
sowards' Pre-Kindergarten Class at North Brooks  Elementary School by Gina Jackson, a Valdosta State University Preservice Teacher.

"The ability to wait is an important part of emotion management."  When you're excited, it can be hard to wait.  Thinking about something else or using a way to calm down can help.  Once you're calm, it is easier to wait.
