Cool Down Zone

With a new school year, I have been spending most of my hours in and around the school... and neglecting my virtual counseling friends. SO here is something one of our 5th grade teachers set this up in her room and it seems to be working. This is what the sheet says:

Cool Down Zone
What happened?

What can you do different next time?

o   Circle any emotions you are feeling:
Frustrated  angry                   sad    discouraged        grumpy      annoyed     disappointed
Confused   jealous       embarrassed       worried      afraid

Are you calm?  ______
Are you focused?  ______
If you said yes to both, you are ready to join us J

If you would like Mrs. _________ to read this put it in the envelope.  If it’s only for you to read then trash it & forget about it!

She has an area in the back of the room just to cool down. We are very lucky to have a teacher that cares about our kids emotional learning as well as academic. 

Love this lady and all she does,

Your Floridian Chick!
