mmmmm… “Calm Spot” at Antheil!


Mrs. Alicia Beachem was awarded a grant from First Day of School Foundation to create a "Calm Spot" in her classroom to help students with emotional dysregulation.  Students LOVE the new space!  When they enter the calm spot they have a task board where they identify how they are feeling and make a plan for WHAT they are going to do in the space.  Some of the options include breathing exercises, using a sensory solution (from the green bin), journaling, or drawing.  They have a weighted lap blanket, Chromebook lap desk, and a HUGE comfy bean bag.  They really are so happy to have this ZEN place in the classroom!
