Promoting a Peaceful Classroom

We created a Peace Seat this week to help children have a special place to relax alone.  It has a beanbag, fidgets, sensory bottles, books, and some flowers.  When a child is feeling like they cannot control themselves or that they just need to be alone, they can venture to the peace seat to relax.  We added photos of happy kids smiling and a peace sign.  We are encouraging them to make art work to hang in the area if they choose.  It has been out a week and many students have enjoyed the area already.  There is a koosh ball fidget that they all love!  This week we are going to create descriptions of what peaceful behavior at school looked like.  Try it in your classroom!
