A cozy and welcoming area are key for students to begin emotional growth. The requested cotton craft rug and floor seats will provide students a comfortable area where students will identify their emotions and the cause of them. Once students identify their emotions and the cause, they will then decide what they will do next based off their reflection. With an iPad, students can download mindfulness and meditation apps that will help them make positive choices when feeling down or angry. Calming tools such as stress ball, activity books and puzzles can be used in the calm down corner. Art will be used as a form of therapy and students can indulge in painting, drawing and coloring when needed. The calm down corner will provide students resources that will allow students to take control of their emotions and make positive and healthy decisions.
