Why Teach Calming Skills?
Teaching children self-regulation tools helps the thinking part of their brain, the pre-fontal cortex, to remain engaged and in charge. Many of our students need extra support in this area. They often come to school already in a state of stress. Until we help students regulate their emotions, they will often have a hard time learning and focusing in the classroom.
Ways to Use
Teachers can use this resource as a part of their classroom management and social-emotional curriculum. While school counselors can use these SEL activities in small groups. In addition to individual interventions for students who need additional support with self-regulation.
The checklist can also be helpful when devising Behavioral Intervention Plans. They provide solution-focused, pro-active tools to replace negative behaviors with positive ones, that are even transferrable outside of the classroom.
The checklist, poster, task cards and spinner craft are also perfect additions to any Take A Break, Peace Corner, Zen Zone and Calm Down Station areas in a classroom.
Available in both printable pdf and digital Google Slides™ formats, this SEL resource can be used in in-person classrooms, distance learning, and home.
