“When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry” is a very accurate representation of what happens when you‘re young and have to learn how to share. It‘s a cute way to show how small issues can later be forgotten and all is well at the end of the day!

When Sophie Gets Really Angry - Really, Really, Angry is a children‘s modern fiction book about a little girl who gets angry and has to find a place to calm down before she returns to her family. This is a Caldecott winner and was written and illustrated by Molly Bang. This book would be good to use as a reader‘s theater in order to aid EL students using strategy #17 by providing support through body language and facial expressions.

The UDL strategy is 8.3 as it fosters collaboration and community by having students work together. #ucflae3414su19

When Sophie Get Angry-Really, Really Angry is a realistic fiction story by Molly Bang. This book similar to situations and feelings of young children when they get angry about little things. However, it has a unique twist because it is dramatized.

A great book to read in the classroom to show children how emotions work. I also love how the illustrations colors represent the moods. Red is used when she‘s angry and cool colors like blue and green for calm.

A book that uses a great use of expressions and emotions. People, like Sophie, get mad of things so silly but it takes a toll on their emotions. People have their ways of calming themselves down and we give them that respected time. When emotions fall back into place, family and friends and waiting to be together again. Award: Caldecott Honor; Published: 1999; Illustrator: Molly Bang

"When Sophie Gets Angry - Really, Really Angry" by Molly Bang is a Caldecott Honor RF book that would be good for an IR. The story revolves around a young girl Sophie who gets angry. She then appropriately manages her anger by going to a quiet place by herself, and returning to her family once her anger has subsided. This book is mostly images and easy vocabulary, making it a perfect book for a young student to read by themselves. #LAE3414sp19

alexandracarpenter There are many activities posted on author/illustrator Molly Bang's website for this book at www.mollybang.com/Pages/sophie_act.html 7mo
alexandracarpenter A UDL strategy that goes along with this book is strategy 9.2 - "facilitate personal coping skills and strategies". Sophie manages her own anger in stead of acting out and hurting herself or others. This is a wonderful example for young children who are learning how to manage their own anger. 7mo
alexandracarpenter An EL strategy that goes along with this book could be 3 - "encourage self talk (positive thinking)". No matter who you are, you have experienced anger at some point in your life, and this book can help children express their emotions in their L2 by providing simple vocabulary and illustrations for them to use as a jumping off point. 7mo
DrSpalding Yes! While this won the Caldecott it also won the Zolotow award as well. You picked a good one! Wonderful resource again and excellent alignment to the universal design principles and English learner strategies. There is a lot of talk about social/emotional learning in classrooms currently. Charge on! 7mo

When Sophie Gets Angry-Really, Really Angry... written by Molly Bang is a RF won a Caldecott Honor award. This book would make a great PR. This book is about Sophie and what she does to cope with her anger. I think this book would be a great addition to any teacher‘s collection as it shows ways to cope with emotions.

JayaJ UDL 9.2, facilitate personal coping skills and strategies, and EL 10, think and pair share strategies in cooperative groups would work well with this book. This link below is a great activity and a discussion guide https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/17-18/when-sophie-gets-angry--r... #UCFLAE3414SuB18 14mo

When Sophia Gets Angry-Really,Really,Really Angry.. By Molly Bang is such a good RF story that is great for a RA. It won the Caldecott Honnor and Zolotow Award. This book shows what Sophie does when she gets mad and how she calms down so she can go back to her happy stage. I love this book because it shows what kids can do when they get mad and many kids don't know what to do when they feel so angry. An ESOL Strategy is 22.

emilybanne Which is give students enough wait time who have a second language, to respond to questions. This is important because during RA you can ask questions that will help them reflect.UDL would be 7.2 Which is Optimize relevance, value, & authenticity. Make sure the students understand why it is so important to try different things like Sophie did to get calm when you are angry. A website that I found is:http://www.mollybang.com/Pages/sophie_act.html 14mo
emilybanne This website has so many fun ideas the author came up with to do in the classroom. One fun activity is the kids can brainstorm all different feelings and then use colors and shapes to describe what that feelings looks like. The website has many more really good activities and resources. #UCFLAE3414SUB18 14mo
RossoS Good choice👌🏼I really enjoyed how the resource provided ways to get your students talking and ways for you to teach your students coping skills 14mo

When Sophie Gets Angry-Really,Really Angry..by Molly Bang A Caldecott Honor Contemporary Fiction book. Excellent book for lower elementary students , to help them reflect on their emotions. The author did great conveying angry emotions through every page with the descriptive illustrations. The story is about a young girl name Sophie.

ERodriguez While she playing with her gorilla her sister grabs it away. That makes her very angry. She gets real upset and then go out and takes a long walk. She starts admiring nature , which makes her feel better then she returns home. 1y
ERodriguez For this book I would prepare an activity chart ,divide it in three sections and start a conversation with class about what makes them sad or happy. As they express themselves, their thoughts will be added to the chart . After , the students will collaborate in groups and make happy and sad masks. (edited) 1y

DianaHerrera @ERodriguez I love the idea of having the students create their own masks. This can help the students bring their creativity to life and I will definitely be keeping this lesson pinned in my Pinterest account. 1y
GGallegos I really love how this book helps to explain showing emotions. Some students will not be taught that at home to say "I feel angry" or "You hurt my feelings". I think it is something to have embedded in our teaching and to take time to teach it! Really cute picture too!!! 1y
emilybanne @ERodriguez I think this is an excellent book for kids to read! I think it will really help them visualize what their emotion looks like! I also love how they can create their own happy and sad mask. They will be able to create on paper exactly what they feel in their mind. 1y
ERodriguez @DianaHerrera When I read it I thought it was great too. I would want to see how they express and draw their sad and happy faces and the colors they choose.😊 (edited) 1y
ERodriguez @GGallegos I love it, especially how it finished. She takes a long walk and then she is happy again. 1y
ERodriguez @emilybanne Great point , that it would help them visualize how they feel. Thanks 1y

I used to read this book to my students all the time, and they really could relate to Sophie, which I believe really means they connected with the book. Often times when they would get mad I would mention Sophie and their demeanor would completely change, and they would become a lot more calm. This RF Caldecott Medal book is about a young girl who gets mad and quickly learns that feeling mad is perfectly fine. This book really helps to encourage

Ryanne.H Children to express their feelings in a healthy way. This book could be utilized as a RA in the classroom. Molly Bang herself has a section on her website dedicated to Sophie and has options for teachers to incorporate this book into their classroom. The activities allow students to comprehend their feelings in safe ways. http://www.mollybang.com/Pages/sophie_act.html UDL 3.1, 7.2, and 9.2 & ESOL 3, 4 and 16 #UCFLAE3414SP18 1y
LisaMart @Ryanne.H Books that teach students about moods and feelings and healthy ways to express them are so important to incorporate in any classroom. It really helps them to become more self-aware and adjust their own behaviors appropriately. I haven‘t read this book yet, but just from your post I‘m sure I‘d love it. 1y
Cruzdia1 I always love seeing literature depict all emotions, not just positive ones. I think it‘s important for students to see a full range and variety of emotions that they can relate to 1y

This book was written by Molly Bang and it received the Caldecott Honor as well as the Charlotte Zolotow Award. This book would be great for RA or even GR. This realistic fiction book is about a girl named Sophie who gets angry when she has to share her toys with her sister. And when Sophie gets angry she runs to an old Beech tree, climbs it, and let‘s the worlds view comfort her. #UCFLAE3414SP18 http://www.mollybang.com/Pages/sophie_act.html

V.DeQuattro This book corresponds with the UDL 3.2 principle. The book shows the patterns and steps of Sophie‘s anger and how she overcomes it. The main idea of the book is based on Sophie‘s anger. 2y
Laura.S @V.DeQuattro I definitely want this book for my classroom! It sounds like it has so many lessons and values included in the plot. I love how Sophie gets angry and finds a way to calm down. I feel as though many kids need to learn that lesson! 2y
V.DeQuattro Yes! It is a great way to teach K-1 about controlling their emotions and how to express them. @Laura.S 2y

DrSpalding Wonderful post using the author‘s website as your resource. This is so wise. Molly Bang is an award winning author and has many other books of value for use in your classroom. She may be an excellent one to further study for your author study. 2y
V.DeQuattro She is definitely an author I would consider for my author study! @DrSpalding 2y
DrSpalding A good choice and I‘m not sure she‘s currently on my list but we can add her. One of my UCF colleagues knows her personally! 2y
V.DeQuattro That‘s awesome! @DrSpalding 2y
V.DeQuattro A great EL Strategy for this book is 3. Ask the student if they have ever felt anger or upset. Then ask them how did they make things better. Or ask if the way they reacted was right or wrong. 2y

When Sophie Gets Angry by Molly Bang is an adorable, beautifully illustrated Caldecott AND Zolotow award winning book. This RF story can be used as a IR or RA book. In this story Sophie becomes angry when it is her sisters turn to play with the toy gorilla. She screams, cries, and runs away. After spending some time alone, Sophie feels better and goes back home. This story teaches a wonderful lesson on how to handle anger in situations you cannot

KarinaGuillen control. UDL principal 7.2 Optimize relevance, value, and authenticity should be used so student feel that reading this story serves a purpose. Also, EL strategy 6 Continually monitor students comprehension should be used to make sure our ESOL students are not getting a off task and are following along. In the attached website: http://www.mollybang.com/Pages/sophie_act.html is the official book website with reflective questions students can (edited) 2y

farynantenucci I think this story has a great moral lesson for younger readers who may still be dealing with the temper tantrum stage. I like the website resource you linked, I think this could be used before a read aloud of the book to activate the students prior knowledge. 2y

I loved this RF book! When Sophie gets really angry, she climbs her favorite tree. This book acknowledges different people handle anger in different ways, which is a wonderful lesson to learn. The author is big on channeling anger to create art & has some teaching tips/ activities on her website to help you do the same in your classroom http://www.mollybang.com/Pages/sophie_act.html #UCFLAE3414su17

DrSpalding By honoring this book in class, YOU checked it out! This makes me proud @Jerricajay Great job going to the author's site! 👏🏼 2y
Chanelamber Nice! Like we have discussed as a class books like this are great for children to work on finding solutions to calming down. The illustration made me giggle too. Lol 2y
