I really appreciate having a Calm Down Corner in our classroom because it empowers children and supports a calm and respectful classroom culture!  Children can go there to calm down if they are feeling stressed or upset, or even if they are hyper and have to settle themselves.  It is great to empower children to recognize this in themselves and find their voices to ask for time in this calming space.  Sometimes in our large class, a child may just need to step off for a few minutes to reset.  I love how the children respect each other enough to recognize that they may need this time or when others need it.  It is supportive of our PBIS objectives of Respectful, Responsible, Safe, and Kind!  I even use it after the AM Kinders leave to reset for my afternoon!
