Wilma Jean the Worry Machine, written by Julia Cook and Anita DuFalla, is an awesome book to read to students. Wilma Jean worries about everything concerning school, whether it’s getting called to work a math problem on the board to not having anyone to play with during recess. The teacher does an activity which allows the children to write worries they can and cannot control. By doing this activity, this helps Wilma Jean control her worries. It gives parents and teachers insight on what students worry about on a daily basis. Reading this book to the class will help them accept things that they can’t change! I can do an activity similar to what the teacher in the story did, have the students write out the worries that the can and cannot control.
