This is a digital resource. You will receive instantly upon purchase.

This fall-themed self-regulation digital activity explains self-regulation while allowing students to externalize their feelings to a pumpkin. Separating their feelings from their identity makes it easier for younger students to understand the power of their feelings and helps them to feel more in control of their emotions and actions. This would be a perfect Halloween activity to use in person or to send directly to students working remotely.
