The Way I Feel - Janan Cain

A cute picture book about emotions and how they can affect people. This could be helpful for children that may need help on emotions and what they are feeling. I wish that this book would include what to do with your emotions, especially the negative ones, but it can be good for identifying emtions that children may not understand.

When Sophie Gets Angry -- Really, Really Angry - Molly Bang

This is a helpful story that was introduced to me by my Cooperating Teacher. It's about a little girl that gets angry at her sibling. Instead of yelling or lashing out, she goes outside and takes a walk. After she calmed down, she comes back to her family and she feels better. After reading this book to a kindergarten class, the students started following Sophie's example by walking away whenever they got upset. It really helped with hurt feelings and preventing meltdowns.

My Mouth is a Volcano
My Mouth Is a Volcano Activity and Idea Book - Julia Cook,Carrie Hartman

"All of Louis thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano!" This book can be used in the classroom to introduce classroom rules, expectations and routines. It can lead to a discussion on what should be appropriate to ask the teacher and what the student should ask a peer. The book is a great engaging materials that allow students to learn how to follow procedures.

When Sophie Gets Angry -- Really, Really Angry - Molly Bang

When sophie gets really really angry  illustrates a girl named Sophie who gets angry and runs away. This book would be great to introduce emotions in the classroom. Anger can be very upsetting for some children, therefore this book displays that everybody gets angry sometimes. The discussion can also lead to what you can do to deal with anger. This book can also be read to the class while introducing routines and expectations.
