Teach Emotional Regulation, a tool needed to be successful in school and in life. Use these activities as an adjunct to any self-regulation/behavior/social curriculum (ZONEs of regulation™, SEL™, PBIS™, How Does Your Engine Run™...) for fun ways to review and master the material. Two easy ways to make a spinner are a brad and paper clip or paper clip and a pencil. If you use a pencil and paper clip, students will work on bilateral hand use as one will need to hold the pencil over the paper clip and the other will need to flick the paper clip. Students should be encouraged to write about how the situation may have affected the character and those around them. You can also have them write or talk about the emotions, states and/or Zones that may be represented in the situations they rolled.
Spin and discuss Situation: Includes 2 boards with 12 situations. Students spin a situation then describe what feeling/Zone the character is experiencing. Add a writing component and a discussion about how the character can change their feeling/Zone.
Spin a Situation: 2 spinner boards included. Spin and, label the Zone/state, give an example emotion and explain a time when someone might be in that Zone/state. Make multiple copies and come up with your own situations to discuss.
Roll an idiom: 4 boards are included, both with and without pictures for a total of 12 characters and 24 idioms. Each student takes turns rolling the die to determine character and the idiom. Discuss the idioms and what the expressions mean. Have students use the template to write about their character, idiom and what feeling the character is experiencing. Have them complete as many sentences as time allows.
Cut and Paste Sentence strips: These are sentences from the roll an idiom boards. They can be mixed up and used for models. Color and black and white options are included.
3 blank boards are also included. If you have time for a longer lesson, let students cut and paste several boards together to make their own. You can also fill in your own ideas.
