I created these posters for my students who need extra support for behaviors. There is often confusion between earning a break and needing to cool down. These posters help the student understand if they're taking 5 minutes because they worked hard and earned it, or if they just need 5 minutes for themselves to regroup and cool down a bit.
Once I introduced this to my students, it really helped them SEE and UNDERSTAND what actions led to outcomes.
This PDF has my 4 choices for breaks and cool down options, however, you could always create your own options on a Post It and printed icon to place over poster.
