Life can sometimes be overwhelming, especially for children who are still learning how to handle their emotions. Many children struggle with emotional regulation due to various factors, such as developmental delays, environmental stressors, or simply the challenges of growing up. For instance, a sudden change in routine, conflicts with friends, or difficulty in understanding a new concept at school can cause distress.
In these instances, having a strategy to help children regain control of their emotions can be incredibly beneficial. This is where a "calming box" or "calm down kit" comes in.
Last week the post was about the amazing benefits of brain breaks and learning. As promised at the end of that post, this week I am posting some fun and free brain break ideas that you can use in the classroom or your home-school.
Do you have a class that seems jittery, unfocused, inefficient, and with some behavior problems that are difficult to deal with? A simple solution to many of these issues for a large proportion of students is brain breaks.
Imagine working non-stop, learning new things all day, and trying to retain it all without much of a break in between. It’s probably fair enough to say that your focus will start to dwindle as the day goes on, the ability to absorb information will fade, and the quality of work will reduce. Hence, a not so calm and unfocused classroom will result too.
