I will be using the books to teach students in the classroom setting and in small groups so that students can learn strategies to regulate their emotions in healthy ways. Students need modeling and guided practice on how to identify their emotions through sensations in their body, how to pause/stop and then think of strategies to use to calm their bodies so they are ready to problem solve and make safe, respectful, and responsible choices. I will also teach students ways how we can move from a fixed mindset to developing a growth mindset, this will also help build their self esteem and motivation as a learner. Students with high levels of frustration or low self confidence and low self esteem tend to have negative attitudes about themselves and do not believe they have the ability to grow/develop their skills. Using these books will aid in having discussions around how we can shift or re-frame our negative/fixed thinking patterns to positive/growth mindset patterns in which students can believe they have the ability to work hard, train their brain, and develop skills over time through perseverance, support and effort. The music CD's will be used in the class to practice mindfulness throughout the day in school. Supplies like the glitter glue will be used to make calming bottles that students can use in a calming area as a way to self regulate. They can shake the calming bottle, pay attention to the glitter as it settles to the bottom while taking deep breaths to calm themselves. The bubble timers can be used in a similar ways to help students pause, refocus their attention and/or calm themselves by doing mindful breathing. The books and supplies will be used to encourage students to practice being mindful and develop a growth mindset.
