Here at Kleefeld School we often talk about the Zones of Regulation. I put a blurb about the Zones in our Newsletter, and we talk about Zones throughout the school year. Basically, the Zones are a way of understanding our emotions and learning how to manage our feelings and reactions. The link below shows the Zones poster, along with some “tools” that help us to find our way back into the appropriate zone. Usually we like to be in the Green Zone – this is where we are comfortable, calm and ready to learn. The Blue (low energy) zone and the Yellow (high energy) zone have their places, but most often we might find that we need to find ways (tools) to bring our energy down or up. Take a look at the link, and let me know if you have any questions or stories to share!
