School Anxiety

School Anxiety has kept me busy this year.  My school is on a year round schedule and we've been in session for two months.  Since that time, I've had a HUGE increase in referrals of students suffering from school anxiety.  I've had more referrals in these past two months when compared to the entire last school year.  Since this has been such an issue, I created a Worry Buster Tear Sheet Activity to help students take an active role in reducing their anxiety.
This is a color copy version with six worry reducing strategy ideas already printed.  Students can choose and tear off a worry buster strategy and complete the action listed.
I keep items in my office for students to complete these activities. Some examples of things I keep on hand are jump ropes, mini bags of pretzels, small water bottles, games, and inexpensive journals.
I like to use blank or black & white versions of this activity in my individual and group counseling sessions.  Students can write or draw their own worry reducing strategy ideas.  It's a good physical reminder of things they can do when they feel anxious.  

This Worry Buster Tear Sheet Activity is FREE in my TPT store.  You can click on the link here:
to download a copy.  Thanks for stopping by!
