Included: Two stress scales, one with numbers and one without numbers.
This is a stress or emotion scale that can be used with a variety of students. This scale has been especially useful for me when working with students with Autism and students with ADD.
Have the student draw a picture of what each level of emotion feels like under the "Looks Like" column. Typically 1 is the happiest emotion and 5 is the worst emotion. A sample drawing is provided in the preview.
In the preview, 1 is "happy", 2 is "frustrated", 3 is "anxious", 4 is "overwhelmed", 5 is "angry".
After selecting the emotions your student is most likely to feel, have your student explain what it feels like when he or she is experiencing each emotion. Write how they feel under the "Feels Like" column.
Finally, come up with strategies to aid the student in dealing with those emotions. The strategies will vary per student. When you have chosen a strategy, write it under the "I Can" column.
It is recommended you laminate the scale and write on the laminated scale with an erasable marker. This way, if the student's common emotions or strategies change, the scale can change with the student.
