Self-regulation is a critical skill for young people to master, but teaching it can seem overwhelming. This session will help you learn tried and true strategies that help students learn to regulate their emotions and behaviors. Just like teaching anything, teaching self-regulation skills requires explicit instruction, scaffolding, and several methods to choose from. Kara will share her routines and procedures, as well as an extensive tool list. Ideas for in person and virtual learners will be shared. You will leave able to implement something immediately!

Time will be alloted to get started creating some emotional rating cards. If you are attending in person – materials will be provided. If you are attending virtually, you will need the following supplies to take advantage of the work time:

  1. Scissors
  2. Glue/tape
