Wonderful resource for students and their families who don’t already have a physical calm corner in their home. Can also help students self-regulate behavior during Virtual Classroom sessions.
NO PREP SEL ACTIVITY!
No printing, laminating, cutting, or adhering required! This zero prep digital calm corner only requires a computer, tablet, Smartboard or other mobile device. It’s also designed to be child-directed, so students can even use this resource on their own.
WHY TEACH COPING SKILLS?
Life can get really tough, and it’s especially beyond hard right now. So it’s important to help young people, and ourselves, to cultivate tools and tricks that can support us to get through the hard stuff of living, to relate to uncomfortable feelings with self-compassion, and to practice skills that can help us to feel calmer and more relaxed.
This is where using healthy coping strategies come into play. Healthy coping skills will not necessarily get rid of the challenging, stressful situations (especially the ones we don’t have control over), but they can help us to make better, more empowering choices and move aside some of the confusion, chaos, blahs, and crazies so that we can better see the silver lining, cup-is-half-full perspectives and possibilities.
Moreover, using healthy coping strategies like the ones included in our digital calm corner can help us build our strengths and resiliences, and are a means to take good kind care of ourselves.
