I believe that classrooms need to be a place for all students to feel comfortable. I know that any environment where there is stress can make students uncomfortable. I want my students to know that if they need a place to calm down, relax, and take a few minutes to themselves they have that opportunity in my room. An area like this would also be a fun place for students to read a book.

Consider a separate space in classrooms for students to take a break. Set a timer. Have stress balls, books, paper, crayons, etc. Consider using color/smell/sound so that stress management is a multi-sensory experience.
