Mrs. Carson from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Cozy Calm Down Center

Help me give my students a place to calm down. The canopy and soft seats will create a private place to work through emotions. The wiggle seats and stress balls will be great for fidgety.

My Students

My students work through a full range of emotions daily. During my class they learn to work together as a team and discover different ways to cope with stress and anger through daily guidance lessons, small group counseling and individual counseling.

My students are inner city children that come from diverse backgrounds with many obstacles to overcome.

My students come to class excited about learning despite the many obstacles they must learn to overcome. All students at my school receive free lunches because the high percentage of low income families.

My Project

The canopy and comfy seats will create an area where students can go to privately calm down and reset. They can play with the stress balls and wobble seats I am asking for as well as other fidgets.

I want my students to make this area their own, a safe place where they can go and gather themselves and try again.

Often, as adults, we don't demonstrate to children that it is okay to get angry or sad or mad so long as we work through those emotions and reset so we can try again. My hope is that with the supplies I am asking for I can create such environment.
