APPS:

Not apps, but sites worth looking at:

  1. Angry Birds -calming strategies, etc
  2. Angry Birds art project ideas
  3. Toy-a-Day printables

Here are some items that I have created, adapted, or otherwise worked with students with sensory needs.

I saw one of these online and decided to adapt it for use with some of my students that need some support with self-regulation of stress.

Students use an arrow pointer to show their stress levels, can then look at their own de-stressing strategies.

  1. Ten-point scale of stress shown as a spedometer-plain.  I also have this as a word document, email me if you would like a copy of it for classroom use.  eva(dot)lamar(at)springfield(dot)k12.or.us
