This Schoolio Health & Wellness Unit focuses on Thoughts and Feelings: Learning to Manage How I Think and Feel. In this 58-page unit your child will learn about a variety of healthy emotional management strategies and how to handle the inevitable “Big Feelings” we all experience.

This unit covers:

  • Why it is important to take care of our minds the way we take care of our bodies;
  • Naming and describing common “unhelpful thoughts”, as well as learning how they can lead us down “thought paths”, and how those paths can cause us to struggle with emotional management;
  • Realistic thinking: what it is and how can we accomplish it in times of high emotion;
  • A “Detective Thinking” activity, where students work to uncover the unhelpful thoughts at play in common scenarios;
  • The S.T.O.P.P. strategy for regaining control and assessing the situation when your emotions are high;
  • Management tools for “Runaway Thoughts” and how to take control over your reactions to situations;
  • What in life is within our control and what is outside of our control, and how to make positive and helpful choices when we feel overwhelmed;
  • Calming strategies for when we need to gather ourselves and regain control of our emotions, including tips for parents to create a “Quiet Space” for their children;
  • A mindfulness exercise to introduce children to this strategy of relaxation and focus.


We hope you find this unit valuable for you and your child(ren) to learn some helpful strategies for naming, calming, and managing big emotions.
