Storyboard Text

  • Teaching Students to Breathe
  • First, close your eyes and put your hand on your belly to feel your breath.
  • Make Breathing a Daily Routine
  • Before we begin the lesson, let's take five minutes to breathe.
  • OK, Great!
  • Research shows that spending a short time each day practicing relaxation breathing techniques can help reduce stress and manage emotions.
  • When Intense Behavior Occurs...
  • Shut up! I hate all of you!
  • I don't care. I want to go home.
  • Taking just five minutes in the morning or afternoon, or when the class needs to calm down a bit, can have a huge impact over time.
  • ...Breathing Can Help Restore Calm
  • It's OK, Ella. Everyone feels angry sometimes. Let's see if you can do something to help yourself. Can you try to practice your breathing for five minutes and see how you feel?
  • Let the affected student(s) know that you care, that you are listening and that you want to help. Try to guide the student to use their healthy skills.
  • OK, Ella. I understand how you feel. Would you come with me for just a second, please?
  • Let the student know that it is OK to feel the way that they feel, and what's important is the actions they take. Encourage them to help themselves.
  • OK. I guess so. I will try.
