2nd Step Social Emotional Learning Tip of the Week
Students continue to practice and learn strategies to manage anger, disappointment and anxiety.
This week add exercise to the list of calm down strategies. This can include taking a walk, going for a run, doing jumping jacks, playing soccer, shooting hoops and yoga poses.
Parent Tip: When you see your student struggling to manage an emotion, encourage them to:
- Name their feeling
- Try a calm down strategy like exercise.
Calm down strategies include:
- Counting to 10
- Guided meditation
- Positive self-talk
- Belly Breathing
Praise their attempts to manage emotions and their successes.
