How Do You Calm Yourself?
I have already had to think about my own calming strategies and thought I would share with you what I do when frustrated and upset at school. I want to hear what you do also, so maybe I can have some more ideas... come on everyone... we all know we have those days at some point or another.
So here is my list...
1. Walk away
2. Deep breaths
My students know I can't live without my pepsi. I try to do a can this size each day.. but sometimes I just have to do the Speedway Fountain 32 oz Pepsi.
4. I'm always eating chocolate!! Butterfingers are my go to chocolate right now, but that will change.
5. And the new edition to my classroom that I think I may be using some is my new swing... I LOVE swinging... always have!! And of course I am super excited that I have one in my room for the students to use because it is such a great sensory tool. This is the picture from http://southpawenterprises.com where we bought it. I am planning to post pictures of my sensory room soon.
Your turn... what are some things you do when you become frustrated at school???
