The Calm Down Kit uses brain based strategies to guide a child and adult through a tantrum. The kid includes a child's book, a user's guide, and calm down tools (bubbles and a flax seed/lavender pillow).
Teachers can teach the kit during large group instruction, then keep the kit in the Calm Down area of the classroom. During melt downs, children can use the kit in the Calm Down Area one on one with an adult, until they learn to use it by themselves. This kit allows children the dignity of managing their feelings in a constructive way, and it give teachers much needed tools to support children's emotional needs.
