The calming corner is a safe space where my students feel they can reset, refocus, and process emotions.  We have been using this method for about two years in the classroom with excellent results. Students know they can ask anytime for a break in the calming corner and some even find it a safe space to work with partners on different activities.  This year I have two separate spaces so that more students can utilize the calming corner method at one time.  I find that it is often needed after recess and towards the end of the day.  It ties in nicely with our new wellness curriculum and students are now seeing calming corners in all areas of the school.  It continues to promote a sense of mental well-being and safety which is something that I strive to achieve in my classroom environment.
