La régulation des émotions par la boite du calme en petite, moyenne et grande sections

Abstract : This study was conducted in one single kindergarten class. It focuses on how student's emotions impact their behaviour in the classroom. Given that some students have many behavioural difficulties, the aim of this study is to show that working with emotional regulation can help limit inappropriate behaviour in the classroom. In this study, a "calm box" has been set up in the classroom as a way to better control their emotions. The French version of the Emotional Regulation Checklist (ERC-vf) was completed for a pre-test and post-test. Inappropriate behaviour was recorded. The results show that, following the implementation of the "calm box", the ERC-vf score increased slightly for the majority of students, especially for the students having the most difficulties controlling their emotions. For students with the lowest ERC-vf scores, the use of the "calm box" appears to limit inappropriate behaviour within 30 minutes of its use. However, the "calm box" did not help reduce the inappropriate behaviour of every student in the class: in one case, a second method had to be used.
