Rueda de opciones

In my child class, as many other classes, there is always the moment when one kid gets frustrated and the teacher has to deal with the situation. My child and several other kids could be a bit on that side. His teacher asked me if I could do a spinning wheel for the classroom on a cardboard where the kids would have options that would help them calm down. He gave me several ideas to put in the spinning wheel and I added two, because I put extra space on it (my bad). Later on, I thought it will be better to make him something more durable so I decided to give the teacher something he could be able to use as long as he teaches. I had at home a lazy susan that for many years had been collecting dust, and that is what I used. My son was so proud to give it to him.

Here are the pictures:

and this is it. For those like me that have kids out of school, have a great summer vacation. … at least we are not running like crazy in the mornings😉

Hope you have a very creative day and a great summer vacation!
