Taking a Break from Tests!
Your mentees are well into the testing season with SC Ready testing at the end of April, SCPASS testing this week, and final exams coming up. They may also be stressed about turning in a term paper, or submitting one last assignment necessary to pull up a grade. Regardless of what's going on in class, we know that they look forward to meeting with you to take away from that stress.
We also know that one thing people of all ages can connect on is a love of coloring. We have provided a few motivational coloring sheets below that you can work on with your mentee. Just click any of the pictures below for the full-size image, print it out, and color away. Have fun!
Lazy 8 Breathing
If your mentee is feeling particularly stressed, try doing "Lazy 8 Breathing" with them. Sometimes the simple act of changing breathing patterns can refocus a person and make them feel more at ease. Print the figure 8 picture below, and follow the instructions. You may even want to keep one for yourself!
