Anchor Chart for Calming

I love this- Take a Break Space. Think and about how you are feeling, squeeze a stress ball, and hug a stuffed animal. Come back to class when the egg timer is up!

Genius! Quiet spray. Fill a spray bottle with water (or leave empty), and spray the room to signal that it's too noisy. My spin on this? Add some Eucalyptus oil or Lavender oil to the bottle. Kids will stop what they are doing just to smell it :) That, and Lavender is known to have a calming effect... No time like now to test the theory!
