Llama Relieve Your Stress

Student anxiety is at an all time high.  With grade level standards becoming more rigorous, and state tests looming, teachers are feeling more pressure than ever to prepare students.  That pressure is also felt by students and parents. Teaching healthy coping skills is critical for today's hectic classroom. By addressing mental and physical well-being, optimal learning can take place. 

The ther-llama-ter is a tool for labeling levels of stress and identifying coping skills that are appropriate for each level.  After coloring in their level of stress, students can be guided through coping skills that may help at each level.  From breathing skills to journaling, students find their favorite way to self-soothe.

Fa-La-Llama Holiday Party Craft

Holiday parties at school can be a lot of fun, "IF" they are structured and include an engaging activity.  These llamas in silly holiday sweaters can be taken home as a gift for the family after the fun is over.  Students pick a zen doodle writing circle and one of several llamas and sweaters to build these ornaments.  Teachers and counselors can work with students ahead of time by practicing what they will write on their ornaments.  Students will brainstorm things that they love and write about them.
