My Students

Our Title I school is located in a diverse low-income community in which children face various challenges on an everyday basis and are at risk for falling behind academically. My students will greatly benefit from developing strong social-emotional skills that will make them resilient and help them persevere through difficulties.

My 2nd grade students are incredibly creative, talented, and curious about the world around them.

They love learning and aim for excellence in everything they do. They are a diverse group of highly motivated learners who strive to embody our school-wide values of kindness, respect, empathy, teamwork, and problem solving.

This school year we would like to place a special focus on mindfulness, social-emotional development, self-regulation, impulse control, and making good choices throughout the school day. This in turn will better prepare my students to learn and succeed both academically and socially.

My Project

Our school is starting to incorporate social-emotional learning throughout the school day and I would like to make learning these skills more concrete by implementing Zones of Regulation curriculum in my classroom. Students will learn how to manage their emotions by recognizing their feelings, identifying their current zone, and using various strategies to regain control so that they can get back to the “Green Zone” ready to learn.

I would like to implement Zones of Regulation curriculum in my classroom and create a Cozy Corner that will provide my students with time, space and sensory tools necessary to de-escalate from any given situation in the classroom or school.

I want to encourage students to explore their emotions and manage their feelings in a safe space.

The books, materials, and sensory tools will be used to teach Zones of Regulation curriculum in my classroom and to create our first ever Cozy Corner. These tools align with the strategies my students will be learning as a part of this social-emotional curriculum. They will help my students learn to identify their needs and self-advocate so that they can independently regulate their emotions and behavior in their pursuit for a successful life.
