    After realising I was going to teach health at a new school, I wasn’t sure where to start. After planning a few sessions based on emotional regulation and managing emotions, I thought the purple classroom pet would be perfect.

    My students are in Year 4 and they loved him!! I have posters around my classroom that support managing emotions too. I sometimes even move the purple classroom pet around in the classroom and they think he moves on his own! It is very cute to watch. Some of my emotional students are allowed to have him on their desks as well.
    The book and pet both align to my health lessons and it is one of the best emotional regulation tools I’ve used in my classroom for a long time!!

    10/10 would recommend!!
