How do you help students work through their emotions when they are angry in class? I have started using this cool down center as a classroom management tool and an immediate way for students to relax and calm down. Check it out at http://LivingLearningLeedy.wordpress.com
This classroom management tool can be used in many different ways. Students can earn marbles throughout the day to earn different kinds of rewards. I have included 8 different marble amounts and 13 reward cards. Set a goal for how many marbles the class can earn.
