Calming down

Calm-down cards and plan

These new calm-down choice cards for primary pupils would be useful to cut out and laminate. Based on self-regulation theory, they are designed to help children identify an activity they can do to help calm themselves. By choosing a card themselves, they take responsibility for their own feelings and develop self-efficacy – the belief they can exercise control over their lives and learning. There’s also a nice template for a calm-down plan.
