This self-calming book and choice board helps kids learn techniques and strategies that don't require any equipment or supplies. We don't always have sensory bottles or a calm down corner available so give your anxious students this coping toolbox!
Each strategy is something your student can learn to use at any time in any place with no materials. Relaxation tools like calming jars and stress balls are great but I wanted to give my students skills they can easily access in their moment of crisis both at school and at home.
