Teaching Preschoolers to Switch Gears from Tense to Calm with Paper Plate Steering Wheels
Internal steering wheel symbol I created out of paper plates to teach preschoolers (so they could see externally what was going on inside their inner worlds) self-control from tense to calm with deep breaths. Since I was costumed as a bee, we buzzed like tense bumble bees holding our wheels with tense symbols up. Then we took deep breaths to switch gears and buzz calmly around the room. We turned the happy smiley faces up to see the difference, feel the difference, hear the difference and BEE the difference. Example of my pioneering work for 40 years.
