Social and Emotional Mental Health

Our Zones of Regulation: helping our children to regulate their feelings, energy and sensory needs in order to manage the situation.  Each class has their own zone station in order for the children to build awareness of their feelings and understand how their behaviours can influence others' thoughts and feelings.    

 

THE FOUR ZONES:  OUR FEELINGS & STATES DETERMINE OUR ZONE

 

The Red Zone is used to describe extremely heightened states of alertness and intense emotions.  A person may be elated or experiencing anger, rage, devastation, or terror when in the Red Zone. 

The 
Yellow Zone is also used to describe a heightened state of alertness and elevated emotions, however one has more control when they are in the Yellow Zone.  A person may be experiencing stress, frustration, anxiety, excitement, silliness, the wiggles, or nervousness when in the Yellow Zone.  

The 
Green Zone is used to describe a calm state of alertness. A person may be described as happy, focused, content, or ready to learn when in the Green Zone.  This is the zone where optimal learning occurs.  

The 
Blue Zone is used to describe low states of alertness and down feelings such as when one feels sad, tired, sick, or bored.
