This resource is a decision making 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.*
