***I've included an EDITABLE version of this so you can adjust it to fit your needs!
I designed this resource for the most recent Extreme Makeover Classroom Edition in Monument Valley, Utah. The winning teacher of this huge giveaway was looking for a relaxing environment for her students that encouraged creativity, so I designed the Zen Zone for that purpose. We, as teachers, have the power to provide a comfortable environment for our students-- an escape if you will. How incredible is that?!
