Hogwarts Counseling: Creating a Magical Classroom of Self-Regulation
My students need a tee pee to practice taking space and de-escalation skills. They need window decals to create a more private classroom as this particular space has many windows opening up to a corridor.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My school is a Title I school, meaning we have a high percentage of our students living in poverty. Many of my students have a history of trauma and have difficulty managing challenging emotions. Despite this, my students are silly, funny, hardworking, and excited to be at school.
This year, I am creating a themed space where students who struggle with emotional and behavioral challenges can learn new skills to help them succeed in school.
Students will have access to a check-in/check-out program, weekly therapeutic groups, and individual counseling. This space needs materials to help students feel comfortable, safe, and open to learning.
These materials will help me create a Harry Potter themed counseling classroom for students to receive individual, small group, and larger group counseling in a safe, calming setting. Students will be able to take space and practice self-regulation skills in the tee-pee tent and small area rug which will be created as "Hagrid's Hut." Adhesive panels will be used to cover a large series of windows leading to a corridor and provide a more private space for students to share their thoughts and feelings.
The goal of the Hogwarts-themed counseling classroom will be to provide a safe, nurturing, fun space for students to learn skills that will help them manage their emotions.
