Behavior Volcano

Many years ago at a classroom management training I brought away this self regulation idea for students who have difficulty with managing their behaviors. You involve the student in identifying what behaviors they display when they are calm, BUGGED, and their personal signals of stress. Then you work together to plan "Short Cut" choices to avoid a "meltdown". This sample is one I used a few years ago. I simply attached the visual to the student's desk as a constant reminder for self monitoring.

  1. This is great... but I may need this for myself! All of those "What bugs me?"'s bug me! Maybe I need my own behavior volcano on my front table to remind me what to do when I am getting, mad, upset and altogether unhappy. :D haha

    This is really a smart little reminder for those kiddos who tend to have meltdowns. I am VERY thankful I haven't had one of those in a few years.
