I'm trying to revamp my room for next year and I'd like to see what you all use for a calm down corner or sensory area. Thanks!

I have a bean bag chair in my room and a break box with various fidgets, putty, magic sand, toys, bubbles, and water beads. I also have a visual timer. Every so often I change things out so they don't get bored with the same things. I have a computer that we pull up youtube songs on for rewards. Another area we have in a little vestibule has visual reminders for taking breaks, used to have a yoga ball and a small tent, and various sensory materials.

Sensory Area

For my sensory area I got two of those foldable dividers that you sometimes see at trade shows. This create an area within the classroom that felt separate from the rest of the room. I put some blankets, bean bag chair, and some fidgets in there. It has worked really well as a sensory or calm-down/break area for my students. Best of luck!

I'm doing the same for the first time this year, so I am hanging around for ideas. I picked up some awesome sensory items and figits at The Dollar Tree and Five Below.
