This resource is a coping skills guidance lesson unit for helping lower elementary students learn and build this important self-regulation skill. When students are self-regulated, they are better able to learn!
You can use just the PowerPoints for completely no-prep lessons, or you can use the worksheets as an extension. These PowerPoints are animated and interactive with several opportunities for students to practice the skill you’re teaching.
*Special note: This resource was started and nearly finished shortly before our schools all faced sudden and lengthy closures. It was not created specifically to be a distance learning resource and many of the examples and scenarios included are related or specific to the school setting. That said, I think this may still serve you as you work to share lessons and activities with families and students. Ideas for how to use this in distance learning if it is a fit for you and your students is included in the preview and resource.*

What others are saying...

“Very helpful for helping my students learn how to regulate themselves. I use the powerpoints as part of my lesson and it is very easy to use while distant learning.”

“I liked this resource for in person and distance learning with students. It was interactive and had good situations. I thought the educator notes were a little lengthy, but I appreciate all the information that was given.”

“I used this resource for both in person and online learning. It worked well. I had to adjust the four corners activity by having the students choose a number instead of of physically move to a corner. It worked well. This resource is a great addition to my counseling lessons.”
