At school, we have been learning to recognise and express how we are feeling, and how to manage these feelings in a helpful way. We have been using The Zones of Regulation® to help us to do this.
The Zones of Regulation help to organise emotions into different coloured Zones, like in the picture above. For example, if your child feels happy and ready to do their school work, they would be in the ‘Green Zone’. If they were feeling excited or worried about something, they would be in the ‘Yellow Zone’. If they were feeling tired or sick, they would be in the ‘Blue Zone’.
