Under the Sea Corner
Discount School Supply has always been our go to for getting the best and long lasting quality rugs for our classrooms. When they #gifted Friendly Fish Seating we were completely enamored by the calming ocean print. Since the ocean brings relaxation to many, the high quality imagery makes for creating a serene corner filled with ocean animals.
Children need a place they can retreat to when they need to think, rest, or just decompress. Comfy corners give children a safe place to calm down and relax. This is a great start to instill independent doable self regulation practices.
Typically in a comfy corner whether it is in a Early Child Hood Classroom, Bedroom, or Playroom the goal is to make it as inviting as possible. With soft materials, calming colors, books, plush items, and plants it instantly relaxes a child.
When emotions are in full effect aka tantrum central, providing a safe space for a child to “come back to down earth” will empower the child to be able to regulate their emotions. This comfy corner provides children to focus and wind down, teaching them to take time in a quiet space to deal and work through their feelings, appreciate relaxation, and gives them a skill they can benefit from now and in the future.
Like I said, at all of the three centers I do administration for have always purchased rugs from Discount School Supply because of their finest commercial grade quality, lifetime protection/warranty, KIDPly® backing, Advanced stain protection, Class 1 Firecode rating, and 100% made in the U.S.A. The majority of the time after creating #gifted content for Discount School Supply all the materials are put in the classrooms at the schools. This rug went to one of our infant centers and the children were squealing once it was placed in their room. So thankful for such an amazing product.
