In my class, Math and Science are crazy fun! I strive to create a classroom environment in which students feel comfortable and safe. I want to supply my students with all the tools to be successful not only in their core subjects but also their social-emotional well being.
My goal with this project is to provide an area for our children to go to when they feel aggravated, upset, or angry.
The "Calming Corner" seating is great for the children to set at by themselves and cool down. We will also utilize the feelings books in this area so that the children can see the pictures of the feelings and learn how to control those feelings.
Several of our friends have had a hard life and have lived through some very troubling times. With the many exhibited behaviors of aggression and anger, we work diligently on helping children learn how to self-regulate and calm down before the behavior escalates. This "Zen Zone" will enable students to have a peaceful area to go to when they need a minute to self-reflect or just relax. That’s why I’m asking for the large pillows, canopies, lap desk and stress relief materials. Sometimes it helps to have a focal point when de-stressing. Elementary school can sometimes be hard; these tools will be an amazing resource to help guide them through their tough times
