Clip to ScrapBook #6

I call it "Go to Australia." Australia is the corner in my room with a pillow, a teddy bear (which doubles as a punching bag at times), and a notebook to write about feelings. It's the most comfortable spot in the room and sometimes I think kids are acting up just to get to sit on the pillow for a while.
And, why are you giving the student a choice? If he needs to take a break, that is your decision as the teacher because you are responsible for the safety of the room. Is there something that prevents you from being able to order him to take a break?
