The decision matrix

29/07/2021 by Jean Gross

This is a useful tool to help children make decisions. Teach effective use of the tool :

1. Introduce the tool as a framework for helping them make the best possible decisions – their own decisions.

2. Normalize the use of the tool for all students in your class by introducing it as a universal strategy and not a stigma.

3. Let them know that the decision matrix is versatile and can be applied to many different types of decisions—both at home and in the classroom.

Calm-down choice cards and cam-down plan for primary pupils

21/08/2020 by Jean Gross

Devised by teachingwithmrso  (thank you!) , these are useful cards 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

Also here is a nice template for a calm-dwn plan.

Recently turned into a film starring Julia Roberts, it tells the story of a boy called Auggie with a facial abnormality who struggles to make friends. The simpler version confine itself to how people stare at him and say unkind things behind his back, and how that makes him feel. In the more complex original, his parents have to shield him from this by educating him at home, but now he is about to start school and dreading it.
