Product Description

Our Classroom Calm Corner Toolbox was designed to create doable, developmentally appropriate, and concrete self-regulation coping skills that students can use at school to help them get ready to learn, get along with others, and practice self-compassion. With the exception of sensory tools you might want to supplement in a Calm Box, I included just about everything else you might need to create a comprehensive Calm Corner / Cool-Off Spot / Peace Corner / Safe Space / Take a Break Station for your trauma sensitive and informed classroom (with options to use for personal home use, too).

The underlying belief and philosophy which guided the creation of each element in this toolbox is this: Every child is lovable, belongs and is doing the very best that they can given the resources and skills that they have.

What is a Calm Corner?

A Calm Corner (Take A Break Station, Zen Zone, etc.) is a designated space in the classroom (or home) that invites young ones to self-regulate, breathe, and center themselves when they are having a rough time.If a Calm Corner could talk, it might say, "I see you are in pain or distress. I see this moment is hard for you. Let's try some calming coping strategies that might help you move through this tough moment and feel a little better."

It is NOT to be used as a time-out or disciplinary consequence of a child's behavior, but rather as a nurturing, safe place that recognizes the humanness of each child, inviting them to use healthy self-regulation coping tools that will help them get ready to learn, get along with others, and practice self-compassion.

Creating Trauma Sensitive Classrooms

More and more we are learning about the vital importance of cultivating trauma sensitive classrooms and schools.

Kids need to feel safe, cared for and seen before they are ready to learn and get along with others. Warrior educators like yourself understand this... and this is why we are seeing a movement to implement safe spaces, like Calm Corners and Zen Zones in classrooms.

Teaching children self-regulation coping tools helps the thinking part of their brain, the pre-fontal cortex, to get back on track when big emotions which are adaptive and there for very good reasons- make it hard for kids to engage in school tasks. Many of our students need extra support in this area, often coming to school already in a state of fear, worry & chronic stress. Until we help students manage and relate-with kindness & compassion-to these challenging emotional experiences, they will not be ready to learn the academic tools that students need to be successful in and out of school.
