Personal, private spaces and places are important to all of us. We have lots of nooks and crannies to hide away at home.......quiet places to come back to every now and then when we need to refuel. But what about the classroom? Most classrooms are crammed with furniture, books, desks, shelves, and way way too much stuff on the walls.
Is there a place in the corner of your classroom where you can create a safe getaway place for a student who needs some peace and quiet? You could put A.A. Milne's poem ("Halfway Down" from When We Were Very Young) on a shelf nearby where "all sorts of funny thoughts can run round your head!" Better yet, put nothing at all nearby. Quiet time for quiet reflection.
