Rosenow Receives Grant from Superior Diesel to Create Calming Corners in Every Classroom
Calming corner photoRosenow Elementary School recently received a $1,000 grant from Superior Diesel to provide calming corners in all 30 classrooms at their school. The purpose of a calming corner is to teach and support students’ emotional regulation strategies. The funding will allow the school to purchase the materials needed to create the calming corners such as: soft-covered chairs, sand timers, fidgets, therapeutic putty, social skills storybooks, crayons, clipboards, plastic bins or shelving, and noise-cancelling headphones.
“The calming corner makes me feel good,” shared Christian Rodriguez, a third grade student at Rosenow. “It helps me when I'm really upset and can't think too much. The tools help me concentrate and focus, like the pop-its and the circle chair.”
“Calming corners are a designated space located within the classroom so students can have a safe place to go when they need a break,” said Barb Korneli-Krueger, Teacher on Special Assignment at Rosenow Elementary School. “Calming corners help children to practice identifying feelings and emotions to manage stress, self-regulate and control their impulses. They help all students have a sense of belonging.”
The calming corners will have tools accessible to all students that will help them de-escalate and return to a comfortable headspace after becoming upset. In short, calming corners help develop students’ sense of belonging by providing tools and strategies to support their emotional well-being.
