As a counselor and former teacher, I know how difficult it is for many students to verbalize how they are feeling in the "heat of the moment". This packet of 16 break cards is a wonderful way for students to express that they need a break for a minute to calm down without disrupting your classroom environment! Each one has a different calm down strategy for students to look at themselves and present to you. I suggest laminating these cards and putting them on a key ring for students. I would consider using these for those students that have a difficult time expressing how they are feeling, get angry frequently, and/or tend to need to move around more often than other students in the class. One of the cards even has a blank for students to try to identify how they are feeling and write it in to show you! I use these all of the time with my students - any age - and know you will love them too! Enjoy!!!
Please leave feedback - I would love to hear about it how these work for you!!
