What Teachers Think

"The "Take a Break" spot is one of the most-used areas of my classroom. I like that students have to identify their feelings and find a strategy that will help them calm down. If you're thinking of having a cooldown area in your classroom, I would highly recommend this product!"

"I love the visuals that are on this product. My kinders come back to learning with a clear mind after a minute or two in the calm down corner."

"It is convenient and I love items that kids can not only utilize to calm down but are hands on so they can take more ownership of their feelings."

"Why didn't I buy this sooner?! So many options for how to print and use and a great resource. Taught how to use it in a first grade room and students love it!"
