Calming Virtual Room
Updated: Aug 7
Add this FREE interactive, relaxing retreat to your virtual classrooms for students to enjoy, or cast on your device when you need a break!
I recently decided to create a virtual calming room for when students (or teachers) just need a break. The idea came from my own need for a way to relax during the recent full-time virtual learning and my desire to be able to offer a calm space for my students as well. I shared it on social media in some of the online groups that I belong to and was overwhelmed by the response! Several thousand views, Likes and downloads as well as hundreds of comments from teachers around the globe, I guess we all needed this!😊
This sensory-friendly room has a working fireplace as well as soothing nature videos in the windows, an ocean picture, and a fish tank. The videos are embedded so that they auto-play when an item is clicked in the interactive calming room, there is also a home button to bring you back to the main scene! I would enjoy spending time here & hope that my students enjoy it too!
If you would like this to be a place that your students can visit and you have a virtual classroom, just insert the link to an object or sign in your own virtual room telling them to 'click here' to visit the calming room & it will take them there. You can make a copy of this doc to share with your students so that they can visit the calming room - click here to make a copy https://bit.ly/CalmingRoomOriginalInstructionsTeachersUsingTech . Another option is to assign the link as 'Material' in Google Classroom or in your Learning Management System and it will always be available. I would love to hear from you if you and your students enjoy this virtual calming space!
I would love to hear what you and your students think about the Calming Room, including the grade level(s) of those using it.
