Settling Down

2013-03-13 13.54.05One of the hardest parts of reading or getting down to homework is the ‘settling down’ part. Some kids find it so easy to find that settled place….some kids….not so much. That’s where we come in – we can help kids find the place and space (internally and externally) so that they can settle down begin to the enjoy the benefits of prolonged stretches of reading and/or productive work. It’s one of the challenges in creating a Learning Commons that is productive for all – creating a place and space that suits the needs of all our students. So, with headphones or lying on their backs with their feet on the wall or snuggled into a nest of pillows or at table or in the hallway with an iPad – it really doesn’t matter – because if it works for them, they can work!
