Our incredible bodies talk to us by giving us signals when it is time to eat, drink, or sleep. Our bodies also talk to us about our emotions. This book of lessons and activities provides counselors, teachers, and other caring adults with creative lesson plans and fun activities designed to teach children how to recognize their body's signals of strong emotions and how to use effective strategies to calm down.
A great companion to the picture book, My Incredible Talking Body: Learning to Be Calm, this book contains detailed plans for educators and counselors seeking to engage children in learning about their feelings and equip them to manage emotions in healthy ways. Lessons focus on breathing, movement, mindfulness, and sensory grounding along with practical ways to incorporate these practices into the classroom or group and individual counseling sessions.
