This social story features some adorable trolls (from EduClips) teaching how and why students should stay in control of their behavior. Situations such as being grumpy, getting sick, getting in trouble, changes in schedule, getting a bad grade, sensory issues, having to wait, and having to share are addressed. Each situation gives a practical behavior students can do instead of resorting to out of control behavior.
The fun, quotable verse this story is written in would be easy to remember and use later when students actually face challenging social and behavioral situations.
Color and black/white versions included.
