The Chill Zone

New York Teacher

Jonathan Fickies

The Chill Zone at my school includes board games, educational games, cards, puzzles, LEGOs, sensory items, cash registers and hygiene and grooming supplies. The area is a shared space for all students. It was created to influence peer interaction among our students with disabilities, giving them a fun yet safe way to make friends and socialize. During the spring, students can use the Chill Zone items outside.
