 Implementation Ideas/Suggestions

  • Print and laminate all the pages and cut out the square emotions and strategies.
  • Either yourself or the students can place the strategies with the correct emotions using velcro dots.
  • Throughout the day the students can select the emotion card they are feeling and attach it to the front cover.
  • Then they can select one or two strategy cards to help them to get back on task.
  • Different strategies can be selected each day for some variety.

Amber E
The BEST emotional regulation tool

I have a student in my class who often gets emotional (upset/stressed/nervous) about a lot of things. When this happens she would come talk to me about it and we could come up with a solution. After providing her with the calming strategies toolkit, she now is in control of how she can manage her emotions. This has given her a lot more independence and has helped her classroom learning.

I put the toolkit on a keyring and put the strategies (which have velcro on them) in a plastic bag. She uses the velcro to stick the strategies onto what she can do to manage her emotions.

It is a great tool for emotional students in the classroom! 10/10 would recommend!!
