Help students find coping methods with our classroom display poster highlighting 26 effective strategies for handling intense emotions.

Ease Classroom Anxieties with Calming Strategies for Students

Little bodies… BIG FEELINGS. 

Sadness, anger, frustration, fear, confusion, joy, disappointment—imagine being a kid and not knowing the name for what you feel, let alone why you feel it and what to do about it. 

As children of all ages learn to recognize their emotions and self-soothe, it helps to remind them of useful techniques to calm their hearts and minds, like:

Asking for help

Breathing through it 

Counting backward 

In fact, our calming strategies poster is a 2-in-1! Students will get fun, constructive ideas for how to help themselves through complicated feelings while they practice their alphabet!   

In addition to hanging this poster in a cozy corner of your classroom, you can…

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders to refer to at home. 

💻 Provide it as a digital resource for virtual students. 

✅ Incorporate posters into your daily wrap-up: students write on a sticky note or in their journals about a technique they used that day and how it helped them.
