What educators are saying

This was a great activity to do with my social skill instruction students. They enjoyed making their own spinner and then using it.

Why Teach Self-Regulation Skills

Teaching children self-regulation tools helps the thinking part of their brain, the pre-fontal cortex, to remain engaged and in charge. Many of our students need extra support in this area, often coming to school already in a state of fear, worry & chronic stress. Until we help students manage and relate -with kindness & compassion-to these challenging emotional experiences, they will have a hard time learning the academic tools that students need to be successful in and out of school.

Ways to Use

Teachers, school counselors, and school social workers can use this resource as a part of their classroom management and/or social-emotional curriculum, as a small group activity, or as an individual intervention for students who need additional support with self-regulation. The My Coping Skills Spinner is also a perfect addition to your Take A Break, Peace Corner, Zen Zone and Calm Down Station areas in a classroom.
