    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.
