Calming Corner Comes to Lafayette Mills Funded by $1,800 Grant Awarded to Jessica Young and Jackie Widom

This grant was used to purchase liquid floor tiles to create a calming corner in the 8 classrooms for grades 1 and 2. The tiles will create a “sensory corner” in each classroom to help students who struggle with focus and attention regulate and therefore be available for learning.

Kids simply sit, step or hop on these mesmerizing liquid tiles to watch the colors seep and swirl! Designed with a no-slip backing for safe classroom use, the tiles are filled with colored liquid that creates ever-changing patterns when pressure is applied.

“When activated, a calming corner provides an opportunity for students to reset or re-regulate and when shut down, a calming corner provides opportunity for engagement.” explains Jessica Young, Lafayette Mills Guidance Counselor
