Then in power point, I made a colorful chart to show our 5 levels and how they might feel at each of those levels.
Next, I created a problem arrow with the same color scheme and labels, along with another arrow that shows the reactions/ feelings for each level, and an arrow between them asking if the reaction matches the problem.
We then role played and reviewed. This has actually been a very helpful lesson. When we see meltdowns starting, we ask if the meltdown matches the problem, and it has stopped a few of them in their tracks. I have to love that! I am including a link to this if you want them in your classroom, just click HERE.
