What do you call your Time Out spot?
Last year my students named it the Concentration Station. One mom cracked a joke and said it sounded like Concentration Camp. I told her "Hey the kids named it, not me!" lol I never thought it sounded bad until she told me that. <!--eyebrow-->

Well, I would like to hear other names for it out there. I have heard the following:
Chill Out Station
Quiet Corner
Regain Self Control (The RSC spot)
Reflection Center

Please help me by telling me some more names for TO.:)

Time out place
In my classroom I have a designated corner:
We call it the Friendship Corner.
I have a large poster where 2 people are conversing.
I have used this for years...I let the kids work out their problem.
But a child can go alone too.

I call it the STAR Chair. I use a director's chair, and I decorated the legs with star die-cuts. I have a star bag hanging off of it that contains stress balls. Next to the chair is a sign that says:

Take a deep breath

Some of these are great! Do you have the kids name the spot or is it already named by you?

Lizzy2111 08-28-2010 01:31 PM

I've always called it...
Rest Stop is what I call mine.

I call mine the Rest Pad- my theme this year is all about frogs, so it's like a "lily pad"- a little cheesy
