When You Just Have to Roar! is a fun way to think about classroom expectations

For one reason or another, Ms. Mya's classroom is just not clicking. Jamilla is jumping. Masha is making a mess. And Reese is roaring like a lion for no reason at all. As the day quickly fills with commotion, Ms. Mya knows that she must do something. So she gathers the children together and begins a discussion about classroom expectations. Young children are learning how to control their bodies and emotions—something that can make a classroom feel chaotic and crazy at times. This book is about the ways one teacher helps her students practice managing emotions and behaviors that make everyone happier. Read the book to children to introduce and reinforce these important concepts and support their development of emotional control and self-regulation.
