Middle Schoolers are increasingly struggling with emotional regulation, but at the same time are becoming more creative. I want to adjust my classroom to account for both.
I want to provide resources that help them regulate their nervous systems with stress balls, calming strips, etc... and provide more supplies that allow them to be creative in projects without having to provide their own materials from home.
This is definitely not everything I need to get my classroom where it needs to be for my kids, but these items will greatly help my students feel loved and supported.
