    Great new strategy for teaching resilience! As a companion kit to the children’s resilience coloring book, 18 resilience magnets can now be featured on your refrigerator door or classroom wall with an accompanying set of 50 word magnets describing each resilience card. The 18 magnets are each 2.5 x 3.5 inches, the same size as the deck of cards, and the 50 word magnets, which tear apart individually, come as a 5.5 x 5.5 in square set. The idea is that a parent or teacher can feature one resilience strategy a week, and help the child select one or more of the smaller magnets to describe that strategy. Many words focus on feelings, emotions and vocabulary that promote an understanding and use of resilience building blocks.
  • Use this template to create your own hands-on tool for helping children, students, clients, partners, parents, teachers (OK, ALL of us!) to identify their brain state!  FREE to download
    Jim Sporleder, retired principal of Lincoln High School, used this green, yello, red bulls-eye as a strategy to help students identify where they were in their brain states. This helped teach multiple skills, and it also modeled how to name, label and identify brain states. Our colleagues in Yolo County CA were so impressed with the stress "target", that they created a template and offer it to anyone interested in this tool! Thank you, Yolo County!
