A Classroom Calming Corner is a quiet area of the room equipped with soft furnishings and soothing materials to help a student de-escalate when upset.
I teach 2nd grade in a very busy classroom. There is one student who has major difficulty with certain academic tasks and will melt down whenever he gets frustrated. We don’t know what to do when he gets like that – it’s very disruptive! Sending him out of the classroom isn’t the answer. What can I do to help him calm down?
