     I find that many students need coping skills to handle their emotions.  When students are upset, it is very difficult to reason with them.  I have had good success with teaching students coping skills to help change their emotional state.  The biggest hurdle for these students is to actually put into practice the skills we have practiced when they are calm.  Visual cues can be very helpful for these students.  I made up this visual support.

     I plan on making this a flip book with the "When I feel" page the front cover, and "Now I feel" at the end.  Cut each page in half and attach them together.

I'll let you know how it works.
