During these difficult times – self-control strategies help us control our emotions, learning to overcome our fears and keep calm; and also help us to remember that by using healthy practices we are also helping others.

Guide for Creating Poster

The poster must include the character, Snappy, and refer to lessons found in the story “The Turtle Who Just Couldn’t Keep His Mouth Shut. It should show how we can help slow the spread of COVID 19 by using self-control strategies, “holding onto our sticks,” to control our emotions, and by using healthy practices.

Self-Control Strategies 

  • Meditative moments
  • Mindful breathing
  • Count to 3
  • Close your eyes
  • Talk to an adult or friend
  • Sit on your hands
  • Stop, think, say/go

Healthy Practices
