I believe that classrooms need to be a place for all students to feel comfortable. I know that any environment where there is stress can make students uncomfortable. I want my students to know that if they need a place to calm down, relax, and take a few minutes to themselves they have that opportunity in my room. An area like this would also be a fun place for students to read a book.

Take a Break space: "The basket includes a mirror because sometimes it helps a kid to see the emotion on his own face in order to recognize it.  There are squishy balls for squeezing the tension away, a few cue cards for self calming, and a timer to remind kids not to stay too long.  There usually is a little stuffed cat in the box, too - wonder where it went!?  Someone must have need a little snuggle for the road:) " Love it!

I love this- Take a Break Space. Think and about how you are feeling, squeeze a stress ball, and hug a stuffed animal. Come back to class when the egg timer is up!
