A little background: I teach third grade at a 3-5 school. The incoming third graders are academically low and have many behavioral issues. Of the second grade classes there were two that could not keep a teacher, so the students suffered tremendously. I’m considering creating a calming corner in my classroom. I will have a sand timer and different calming choices: mindful breathing, positive self talk cards, and quiet fidgets. Yay or nay? Any ideas or advice?
