My students need lessons and games such as Flip It!, Conversation Cubes, Chill Skills in a Jar, and more, to improve self control and develop more productive responses to frustration and anger.
Students arrive in our halls sometimes against overwhelming odds, yet they struggle to "check" those experiences at the door. Their life at school can also be overwhelming when they do not have the emotional tools to succeed. Being ready to learn involves academic as well as social skills.
Our students love learning but face many barriers.
Our school is a high poverty school in which parents often need to work more than one job to make ends meet. Students often find added home responsibility at an early age which impacts their focus on learning. Additionally, they may not have the emotional support as parents may either not be present due to work responsibilities or are tired and frustrated themselves. School is a safe haven for many of our students in which they can get their nutritional, emotional, and learning needs met.
My students need lessons and games such as Flip It!, Conversation Cubes, Chill Skills in a Jar, and more, to improve self control and develop more productive responses to frustration and anger. Our students often do not experience positive models for handling frustrations and emotions. They perpetuate what they see which results in acting out. These materials will provide me with specific lessons to assist my students in decreasing violent reactions and provide engaging activities to help solidify and apply these skills.
Decreased violence in the lives of my students will enable them to develop better adult and peer relationships.
Understanding their emotions and adaptive means of responding to those emotions will increase their ability to be successful in school and ultimately decrease the likelihood of involvement with the justice system in the future.
