What educators are saying

This was an engaging resource for my students. It contains many scenarios that they relate to and was great for class discussion about behaviors and attitudes.
My students loved this resource. It really helped my students understand what they can and cannot control.


This activity teaches kids how to identify whether something is within their control or not, which can be useful for kids with anxiety, anger, lack of focus, motivation, or other social & emotional concerns. There are 3 separate sets of instructions for individual counseling, small groups, and developmental guidance lessons. Check out the preview to see a visual of the 3 different ways this resource can be used.

The Cut and Paste activity is great for younger children, while the blank Circle of Control worksheets can be used for students of any age as an assessment tool or as a stand-alone worksheet.
