This pack is intended to help you create lessons for your class and/or use the lessons I have created for my class to help them learn how to better regulate their emotions. I have also included the visuals, games and activities I use to help teach these lessons.
These lessons are geared towards the early years program and elementary school aged children.
I created these lessons to use in my classroom as my school has began implementing emotional regulation and I needed more kindergarten friendly visuals and lessons. My lessons are more drawn out to give students more time to identify and understand types of emotions, identify expected & unexpected behaviours, become more aware of self & their actions, become more aware of others & the feelings of others, understand what makes them happy, unhappy, sad, mad, etc., learning different tools to self-regulate, & identifying the size of their problems. You can teach these lessons in the order that works best for you and your students. I am continuing to add centers and activities that focus on self regulating.
