Support your students in the classroom by providing them with a tool that assists them with taking breaks when needed. These trackers are a great way for your students to visualise how many breaks they can take during the day. Every student can have a tracker or just particular students, depending on the needs of your students.
There are a couple of different versions of the tracker: 3, 5 and 10 breaks.
Print and laminate the one you prefer along with a page or two of the “break card” images.
Discuss with your students that these trackers will stay on their desk and if they need to take a break they can remove a “break card” picture after asking.
Some guidelines may need to be set around the use of these break cards in your classroom.
This resource makes up part of the overall Your Teacher’s Pet Creature Emotional Regulation approach to introducing self-regulation skills. While it works great on its own we always recommend pairing it with a Your Teacher's Pet Creature and our other related resources.
