Have you ever had a child in your classroom who just 'explodes' and has meltdowns when attempting to self regulate their own emotions?
This visual has been designed to support students who feel like they can 'explode' with the intensity of their emotions. The volcano poster comes in two versions - with text and without.
Students can see the progression from calm to explosive with the use of emoticon images. Next to the images are clear, simple visuals which remind students what to do when they feel their emotions escalating.
The visual also has strategy reminders on the poster.
This poster has been used successfully during post meltdown student reflections and discussions. I hope you will find it useful in your classroom and work with students. Easily incorporated into whole school PBIS programs.
Can be used Foundation to Year 6. Created for Australian Classrooms.
