Strategy Sandwiches - Today I'm excited about sandwiches! Not real sandwiches, I'm excited about the strategy sandwich. I made a Calm Down sandwich for a student, who comes at lunch to practice calm-down strategies. The ingredients represent the things that we've talked about trying when the worries start to overwhelm. We put it in a zipper sandwich bag and she tucked it in her lunch kit.
This activity is a fun way to engage your students in a getting to know you activity with their peers. It would be a fun ice breaker to start the school year! Explain that good friends are a treasure and we are going on a treasure hunt to find out information about each other to help us become friends.
