How to use in class

  • I create a tub of cool down cubes as seen in the picture.
  • When I see a child with known behavioral issues becoming stressed or agitated, I place this on their desk.
  • The student then takes a cube and carries out the recommended action.
  • Hopefully over time the student becomes familiar with all the suggestions on the cubes, and is able to calm themselves down without it.
  • I can give the student the cubes without disrupting the overall flow of my lesson.
  • The student independently can choose a solution to their problem.
  • Over time the student learns the self-control techniques and would no longer require the cubes.
  • It is non-confrontational.
  • I can ask other teachers for ideas to write on the cubes.
