Student Well-being

Born to Shine Program

Topic: Managing Strong Emotions

 

In our Born to Shine groups this week, we are focusing on strong emotions. Students will learn to identify strong emotions and understand that it is okay to feel anxious or angry. 

 

Sometimes when our feelings become too strong, we cannot solve the problem in the best way. We want to avoid reacting in a way that involves getting in trouble, hurting other people or hurting ourselves.

 

We are brainstorming helpful ways to handle our anger and anxiety so our reactions are in control. Students are learning to identify their strong feelings, stop and walk away, calm their bodies down and then solve the problem.

 

Students will share the strategies that work for them to cool their bodies down.
