We all need a space that we view as safe so we can take a breather if we need one. Many students in our school have challenges with mental health and emotional needs. These safe space materials will make a difference in the learning of my students by encouraging them to self-advocate, take a break, meet their emotional and/or sensory needs and get back to class. Having a designated space that is welcoming, with a variety of components to meet needs, encourages students to self-advocate and recognize their own personal needs. We continually work on managing their bodies in school, so when they are in the real world and on their own, they have the skills and knowledge to be successful in the workplace and in life. This space will allow students to set a timer for their break (if appropriate), have a physical barrier that I can still see through (providing that safe space feel of their own space), provide visual, audio and tactile sensory inputs, and establishes a welcoming, calming ambiance that the students would be delighted to utilize! When students are able to meet these needs, when the needs arise, they take a short break from the classroom. If students are unable to meet their needs during the day, the needs will wear on them, making success in the classroom very challenging. It truly is amazing what a short break can do for many students; enabling a brain break (prompted by mental health, sensory needs etc.) allows the student to regroup and compose themself again, with a refreshed ambition for success.
