Coping skills task cards help give students the strategies needed to calm down when faced with anxiety, anger, stress or any other difficult feeling or emotion. Coping skills task cards are also great for students who just need coping skills in general. The strategies can be printed on card-stock, cut, hole punched and placed on a ring or stapled in to a mini-book for students to be able to choose what works best for them when needed. Additionally you can cut the strategies and create a cute coping skills bulletin board.
