Creating a Dedicated Space for Reflection

Providing students with a quiet spot where they can calm themselves in times of stress helps them develop self-regulation.

    To support students as they navigate everyday conflicts, Fall-Hamilton Elementary has a nook called a peace corner in every room, with a comfortable seat, a timer, and some distractions, like stuffed animals or a form on which students can explicitly document their feelings and reactions. 

    This video is part of our series on integrated social, emotional, and academic development in Nashville and features key practices from Fall-Hamilton Elementary.
