For upper grade kids, I highly recommend having a Hoberman sphere. It really helps my adhd kids who need a few minutes to get their behavior under control.

Sensory box or objects, beanbag chair or some other type of comfy chair, rug, books, etc.

Mine had a small rug, soft pillows, blanket, and a pocket organizer full of squishy things, bubble wrap, and fidgets. I was fortunate enough to have it in a area where a curtain could be pulled by the student for privacy when they didn't want others to see them in meltdown mode. Definitely a timer, too.

Now that a vaccine is here the reality of going back to the classroom is getting closer to become a reality. I am wondering about how we can help the students begin to practice self management skills now before going back to the classroom. What are some things we can practice virtually that will be used in the classroom?

I feel like classroom management is harder for me than for others. I'm starting to think that it's because I am a male teaching in an elementary.
