My Students

Our school is comprised of general education, Integrated Co-Teaching (ICT), bilingual, and 12:1 special education classrooms. We are in the process of creating a "mindful room" that all students can go to when they need to calm down. Students can do yoga, meditate, and read books.

Many students come from low-income households, and there is also a large ELL (English Language Learner) population.

96% of them receive free or reduced-price lunch. Some of our students have a hard time dealing with their emotions and self-regulating.

My Project

The color printer will be used to print out posters for our mindful room. This will create an inviting and calming space for our students. The throw pillows will be inserted into the decorative covers we have for the room. The decorative beach wood adhesive film will create a feeling of peace in the mindful room. Our students will use this room when they are having difficulties regulating their emotions. It will be a place they can practice yoga and mindfulness. Students will be able to learn calming techniques. The mindful room will be a place for self reflection and self regulation.
