Coloring For Calming

My students need coloring books and markers in order to have a calming, non-threatening activity to do while discussing difficult emotions and situations.

My Students

I am a school social worker in three schools (two Pre-K through 5th grade, and one Pre-K through 8th grade). My students have an Individualized Education Plan for school social work services due to difficulties with managing their emotions and/or behaviors.

My students work hard every day to manage all that goes on around them, and they benefit from and deserve activities and materials that promote calm, order, and joy in their lives.

In my office students experience a temporary reprieve from life's challenges through immersive activities and a safe space to share.

My Project

My students need coloring books and markers. Many of the students with whom I work have very stressful and chaotic lives outside of school, which carries over into their lives there. My project will provide my students with an age-appropriate, deceptively simple activity that is fun, enhances eye-hand coordination, and most importantly: calming!

My students regularly lose themselves in coloring and, in doing so, relax and open themselves up to the ability to talk about what is bothering them and contributing to overwhelming emotions and negative behaviors.

As a result, they can let go of stress and find positive ways to cope, resulting in increased learning in the classroom.
