Finally, they will put pages together to design their own coping strategies notebook. Different versions are included so that you can use photos of your student in their own notebook!

Why Teach Coping Strategies

Coping strategies are activities and tasks that kids and young adults can perform to help reduce feelings of anger, anxiety, stress, and sadness. It's important that kids must practice coping strategies when they are calm in order to benefit from them when they are overwhelmed with emotions.

Once students develop their own binder, they will be able to use it when they become angry, sad, anxious, or upset. Best of all, it can serve as a resource in a variety of settings, including school and home.

Digital Version

A digital version has been added for Google Drive! Students can add their pictures of themselves and type right into the document.

Three Different Versions

Three different versions are included:

• Notebook Pages with Black & White Images

• Notebook Pages with Color Images

• Notebook Pages without Images for "Make Your Own" Pages - Take a picture of a student performing the coping skill and add it right to the page!

NOTE: I've also added EDITABLE forms to help you customize and create your own coping strategies for the notebook!
