Good Morning AGP,
I like to refer to charts like this often to remind myself that some of the behaviors we see as teachers could be due to students’ trauma histories. Although a trauma history may not always be the cause, there is often no way of knowing, which is why our responses should always be sensitive to the possibility.
When a child with a trauma history is triggered by a real or perceived threat, the survival instincts of fight, flight, or freeze responses could be activated. During fight, flight, or freeze, the neocortex part of the brain that controls language, reasoning, planning, and reflection are not accessible.
Three actions to keep in mind if you think a student may be operating from the primitive part of the brain are: validate, mirror, and emphasize. Validation takes practice, as it is often our instinct to say “it’s ok”, or “no, you’re really good at this”. A child in fight, flight, or freeze needs validation for how they are feeling in the moment before they can regulate and access the part of the brain where reasoning occurs.
Later I’ll post a video about how to validate, mirror, and emphasize.

Fill your art area with bins of these amazing materials and watch the magic of process art right in front of your eyes.
You don't need to put them all out at once. Rotate 7-8 each week and watch the children's faces light up with curiosity and excitement.
Art time doesn't need to be about cutesy crafts or hundreds of dollars in ink (printed from your very own printer.)
Process art teaches children how to manipulate objects and materials in their own way, to create something from their imagination, an then tell you about it!
It teaches curiosity, communication, language, exploration, science, math, sensory, social skills... and so much more!
Sometimes the desire to succeed is there, but a student’s skill level or preparation hasn’t caught up. Consider simple “red light, green light” activities to spot check for frustration before it boils over.🚦
