Our coping skills spinner is a fun, hands-on calm down corner tool that will help students to self regulate.  This printable SEL spinner craft helps students to identify their feelings.  In addition, it provides strong calming strategy visual supports.  There are tons of school-friendly coping tools that help students to get ready to learn and get along with others. 


Ways to Use

Teachers and school counselors can use this SEL resource as a part of their classroom management and/or social-emotional curriculum.  In addition, it works great as a small group activity.  Or as an individual intervention for students who need additional support with self-regulation. The Coping Skills Spinner is also a perfect calm down corner tool to add to your Take A Break classroom area.


Why Teach Self-Regulation Skills

Teaching children self-regulation tools helps the thinking part of their brain, the pre-frontal cortex, to remain engaged and in charge. Many of our students need extra support in this area, often coming to school already in a state of fear, worry & chronic stress. Until we help students manage and relate–with kindness & compassion–to these challenging emotional experiences, they will have a hard time learning the academic tools that students need to be successful in and out of school.   Using this coping skills spinner tool in your calm down corner is a great way to help students self-regulate.

I loved the different options in this resource. I could easily adjust the activity based on time and skill level. The kids really enjoyed making it and they use it often when they need to calm down.

I place the resources in our calming corners for the students to use while they cool off or rest for 3 minutes with their timer and fidget. Thank you for providing these awesome tools!

I used this with a group of 6 boys. They loved the idea of making their own coping skills fidget spinner. This is such an amazing product. I love that there were coping skills provided as well as blank ones for the students to come up with. The only thing I would change would be adding blank feeling triangles in there too (Side note: You can also just flip a feeling over and make your own feeling. lol) AMAZING PRODUCT!!!!!

This is a clever and colorful resource that allows students to identify their emotions and to reflect on what they can do to cope with and/pr alter how they are feeling. I love that they are many options for coping strategy and look forward to using this with my whole class to help them take control of their emotions and be proactive!
