Calm Corners at Moreland Hills School

 
Every classroom in Moreland Hills School has a Calm Corner
What’s a Calm Corner? A Calm Corner is an area where anyone in the class can go to feel calm or settled.  Schools throughout the country are using Calm Corners with positive results. Many teachers see Calm Corners as a way to help students tune in to feeling and behavior triggers; to take responsibility for their own behavior; and to foster a supportive and composed classroom culture.
 
Calm Corners can contribute to kids building the important trait of self-efficacy, which is developed when they see that their own actions can lead to real results. Students who regularly use Calm Corners as a positive space can strengthen mindfulness and resilience. And, Calm Corners aren’t just for school – many families in our district are creating space for them at home.
