Managing Stress Poster Set 

Helping preteen students learn how to regulate their emotions provides them with valuable life skills that will serve them well throughout adolescence and adulthood. It promotes their mental and emotional well-being, enhances their ability to make sound decisions, and fosters healthier relationships with others. This poster set will be a valuable addition to your teaching toolkit and handy to have for your Health and Social and Emotional Learning lessons!

  • Each poster covers a different topic:
  • What are coping strategies?
  • Helpful coping strategies
  • Unhelpful coping strategies
  • Coping strategies to try when you’re feeling stressed
  • Managing your stress using your senses

Display them all together, or choose the one you feel is most relevant to your teaching theme.

How to Make the Most of Your Managing Stress Posters

Here are some ideas from our teacher team on alternative ways to use your managing stress posters:

  1. Print the posters on A3 paper and display them in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the posters on A4 paper, slip them into a clear sleeve, and use them in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the poster on A4 paper, slide it into a clear sleeve, and hang it on a ring as a reference tool for a resource centre. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick!

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.  

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for ipad work.

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
