A "Cool Down Zone" is a safe place for students to calm down when they are upset. When students are incredibly upset, we cannot hold logical conversations with them. They must calm down before you can reason with them and before they are ready to learn. A cool down zone teaches students self-regulation and coping strategies. Students can go to your cool down corner whenever they are feeling upset and unable to learn.
This product contains:
* A sign explaining the directions for using the cool down zone.
* An editable version of the sign in which you can edit the number of minutes students are allowed to stay and the number of deep breaths you'd like them to take when they arrive at the cool down zone.
* 6 pre-made task cards with activities students can complete. (You provide the materials for those activities).
* 2 blank task cards that you can edit to add your own activities for students to complete to help them calm down and self-regulate.
