    This is just the resource I was looking for. I am looking forward to using this in my classroom this year. Thank you for all your amazing resources. They are very pleasing to the eye as well as very useful to the classroom population.

    We are required to have a calm corner at my school, and these little dot characters are adorable! My kindergarteners love them!

    My students loved learning about different strategies to cool down. The bulletin board set is very calming, which adds to the idea of a cool down corner.

    My students love the different cool down choices, especially the coloring pages. I also love that the posters come in large and small sizes! Excellent resource that saved me so much time!

    I hung this up in my calming area with some bean bags. The students love it and I refer to it often when a student needs a break. My only complaint would be that on two of the posters the dot dudes are cut off, but I messaged the seller and she said there was nothing she could do. She was quick to respond and extremely helpful! I’ve had many compliments on this!

    Great visuals for whole group and individuals. Posting strategies, feelings, yoga, and affirmations sheets for whole group reference. Great resource.

    This is a great resource for encouraging students to use calming strategies! I love that it focuses on a step-by-step approach and provides a variety of strategies. I do wish that there were more options for breathing (e.g. rainbow breath, star breath, figure 8, etc.) similar to how there are options for yoga poses as I find this is a common choice by students and some struggle to do a full 7 count inhale and 11 count exhale. Overall I am really excited to have this resource for my students and also to support my instructional aides as they support de-escalation in the classroom!

    This resource was BEYOND helpful for my SPED students. I used this resource in my calm down corner and it was very beneficial for students to relate to when they were upset.

    My students have LOVED having this resource available to them in my Calm Down Corner. Different students need different things to regulate their emotions, so I appreciate having both hands-on activities and just simple yoga/breathing exercises.

    This is one of the best parts of my classroom. There have been so many emotions flying around as students are learning how to socialize again. Or for many other reasons, sometimes our students just need a break. My students use my calm down corner often and love it. Even my admin commented on how great this area of my room is and how helpful it is for our students.

    I love this resource. This was perfect for my Life Skills students. Not too “baby” for my older kids.
