Self-Regulation take-a-breath Song for children by Margie La Bella of Music Therapy Tunes (uses conscious discipline techniques)

Conscious Discipline Hokey Pokey Breather

A good song to encourage and foster self-regulation/calming.

You take a big breath in…..

You take a big breath out….

You take a big breath in….

And again you let it out….

You can do the ___ breath.

You can learn to calm. (Or I’ve got no doubt, or Don’t need to shout or whatever works best for your group.)

That’s what it’s all about.

Think of different ways to breath and sing those types of breaths in the place of the word “big.” Sing about that particular way to breath. Our school sings about……

The big breath, the balloon breath, the snake breath (ssssssss,) the mommy breath (shhhhh) the spiderman breach (whoosshhhhhhhhh) and more.

 

A good song to encourage and foster self-regulation/calming.
