Students in all grade levels are working on coping skills and using the Incredible 5-Point Scale to recognize what level of strength their emotions are at. With the 5-Point scale, students learn to recognize how heightened or calm their emotions are and what they need to start doing to stay or become calm. With this, students are also practicing calming breaths and becoming more mindful of these breaths. So far we have learned about Pinwheel breathing which has a student hold a pinwheel and as they exhale the pinwheel slowly turns. The visual is helpful in showing students how to take the calming breath and not a hard and fast breath.
