Many schools that use Relax Kids resources are now creating a Calmer Classroom pack to use in the classroom. Calmer Classroom packs are ideal for encouraging pupils to self sooth and manage their stress and anxiety.
Having a collection of simple items that are readily available and encouraging pupils to use them when they need is important.
One pupil suffered from ADHD and would get extremely anxious during school. He used the feather in the calmer classroom pack. Whenever he started to feel anxious, he would take a feather and blow it gently.
