Did Someone Say Exit Strategy?

In a previous post, we discussed the importance of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) for children.  This essentially means giving children the opportunity to recognize how they feel and then offering children strategies to exit any mood they get in.  There are essentially 4 different moods, also known as quadrants, that children exhibit.  These quadrants are color coordinated.

Red Quadrant: 

What feelings are exhibited?  Feelings of unpleasantness, high energy emotions, feelings like anxiety, rage, frustration, anger, and fear. 

Children need to understand what caused them to feel this way? Think about what may have happened to make them feel 

unpleasant, angry or fearful.  

Children need to understand what strategies they can use to feel less unpleasant, angry or fearful?

Strategies include (but not limited to): taking deep breaths, sitting and relaxing, exercising, learning a hobby, taking a shower or bath, yoga or reading.  Each child needs to find their niche to help them navigate through their mood.
