Calm Down Jar. It is really easy to make. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, they can get up. This one is a really great technique to use in lieu of timeout. The glue makes the water so thick and gooey that the glitter just slowly and gently swirls around, it takes about 5 minutes for all the glitter to settle, perfect to gather your thoughts!

Idea for upset kids? Alternative for timeout: Mind Jar. The goal is that when they are feeling out of control, they shake the jar, then sit and watch the glitter settle in the water. When the glitter settles, we finish our meditation/timeout.

Writing in salt (this site has Montessori & Montessori-inspired activities).

Writing in salt (this site has Montessori & Montessori-inspired activities). Is salt the best idea for this? I might choose sugar. Salt hurts when it gets in your eyes.

This is a fabulous idea especially for students who are just learning to, or can't yet, tell time!

Clutter-Free Classroom: Clock Schedule Display Kids who are working on telling time, they can refer to the little clocks as a guide for the BIG clock! Love this!
