Students can regulate their emotions and refocus with this calm down activity kit. Any student can use this kit when they need to calm down from anger, anxiety, or overwhelming feelings. By teaching students self regulation, you will cut down on the time you spend redirecting misbehavior. The calming kit includes a mood meter for assessing current emotional level. After using the counseling activities in the kit, students assess their mood again to decide if they are ready to return to the group.
Can be used by school counselors, classroom teachers, special education teachers, school psychologists, social workers, or any other educator who helps children with emotional regulation.
