Now for some Monday Made It with 4th Grade Frolics!
Our school follows the CHAMPs procedures for school wide behavior management. I developed CHAMPs procedures for my students to use when they need to cool down or take a time out.

These items are referred to in the procedures:
C.O.P Notebook (Chill Out Plan)
I found a great idea here about a notebook of ideas that can help a student calm down. I have not started my social skills group yet this year, but this will be first on our agenda. The gist of this activity is for the student to make a list of ideas that would help that student "chill out" if they are angry or anxious. The student will glue this list into the inside of a composition notebook that he/she will use to write or draw in during a cool down or break time.
Some suggestions for the list of "chill outs" are:
- Imagine yourself on vacation
- Take a deep breath and let it out like you are blowing up a balloon
- Use a stress ball
- Imagine yourself in the snow (the snow will cool you off when you are hot because you are mad)
- Listen to music
- Count to ten
- Break craft sticks (I liked this idea from the School Counselor Chronicles---sometimes we just have to get that aggression out)
And finally...a little blog hoppin' with Blog Hoppin' & What the Teacher Wants
1. I want my classroom painted and organized. The paint I can wait on, but living in the disorganization is killing me!
2. Some more cute sandals (with backs). Read my Teacher Clothes post for that little fun bit!
3. An extra pair of hands to do all of the projects in my mind!!
