Product Description

This is a Positive Mantras is a Positive Behavior tool to be used in the classroom in order to help the teacher address various challenging in the classroom in a positive way.

When to use this resource:

When your student is making a poor choice or needs a reminder of the rules and expectations, you remove him or her from the area to the “thinking spot”. There, you provide them with the “positive mantra” that best fits the situation (choose from the options below or make your own) and direct your student to trace the mantra as they recite it quietly.

This activity allows the student to:

  1. Redirect negative behavior to appropriate behavior.
  2. Time to cool down.
  3. Rehearse the expectations.
  4. Time to think and review the past events
  5. Practice writing.
  6. Make a good choice (by following the directions to trace the mantra)
  7. Reset before going back to the group/ task

This can also be used as a data collection tool for you, because you can save the tracing sheets to show you what kind of reminders the student needed and how frequent you needed to to use them. NOW EDITABLE!!

How to use this resource:

Dedicate a place in your class that is facing away from the center of the room to allow for less distractions, less simulations, and more focus. Set up a student desk in that spot (facing the wall is best) with a chair and a pencil (I Velcroed a pencil to the table but you can also put a small pencil holder on the table).

When a student is making a poor choice or needs a reminder of the rules and expectations, you direct them to the thinking spot with the matching mantra. While in the “thinking spot” provide them with help as needed to trace the mantra, read it, and recite it. When they are done with the tracing and the reciting, it is time to debrief:

  • You can redirect the student back to work/ group: Ask: “are you ready to make good choices?” or “are you ready to go back to group/ work?”
  • You can review past events with the student: Ask: “why did you need to take a break?” “what did you think about?” “What are the rule/expectations?”
