The Take a Break chair is a new element of the Responsive Classroom curriculum at Primrose Elementary School, used to teach children to identify and manage their feelings. Responsive Classroom is a key component in the district’s commitment to Social and Emotional Learning. School Psychologist Regina Kaishian and School Counselor Katie Bergin are introducing the Take a Break concept to some classrooms at Primrose and in others they are connecting existing Take a Break chairs to Zones of Regulation, which help kids identify their own emotional and physical experiences. By dedicating time to talk about the chairs and zones to all students at Primrose, the counselors are normalizing the use of the chair. Click on the headline to read more on this story.
