Feeling happy that you are not her.
Having empathy for her.
Thinking she will not have many friends after this.
Wondering why she is sad.
Just get started and do the project the way you want.
Read a book.
Calmly ask your teacher how to do it.
Wait at your desk for someone to notice you.
Tell the kids you know how to play the game and you win every time.
Wait until someone notices you and asks you to play.
Ask a question about the game, then respectfully ask if you can play too.
Wait until they start a new game, then ask them if you can join in.
Stop and think
Walk away from the test and sit on the carpet
Name her feeling
Jillian needs to run around the playground
Tell him to take a break from the art room and read a book in the hall.
Ignore him when he bangs the table with his fists.
Assure him it is a challenge, but you will help him get the project done.
Tell him to take some belly breaths and you would be glad to show him.
Assertively brainstorm with Cally the different parts of the assignment that need to be done.
Give Cally a job to do and tell her not to talk.
Do the project yourself so you get a good grade and turn it in on time.
Identify what the problem is that is bothering you.
Call the kid out, “You are a cheater!”
Take a calming breath and do some belly breathing.
Tell yourself: “Chill. Maybe he doesn’t know the rules.”
Quit the game and walk away.
Walk away and refuse to listen.
Confront the gossipers and tell them to stop.
Stand there and wait for them to stop.
Explain that their stories aren’t true, then assertively state the truth.
The plan makes sense and you are able to follow it.
Make sure the plan is challenging and a little complicated.
Make sure you have enough time to complete the plan.
You have your plan in an order that makes sense.
No, I don’t want to do that.
I need to think about that.
You can do it, but leave me out.
Do you think we will get in trouble?
