Together with M, we made a little ring of calming tools.
She made the illustrations.
In our class, we talk about glitches, bummers and disasters...
and how to handle different kinds of problems.
Language I picked up from chartchums a couple years ago.
This is a breathing figure 8 tool from "Zones of Regulation".
She often makes the 8 on the hand of our wonderful EA, Lori.
M loves to watch the bubbles and smiles float around inside.
She has a black sketch book that I purchased from Dollarama.
It's another place to express herself through drawing.
We draw a lot in our classroom, but M loves to draw all the time
and forgets about the other work. Wink!
As I share the calming tools she uses, I am reminded of how useful they are for all.
A reminder to take a little time to do something that calms our hearts.
