In Primary One we have been learning about the zones of regulation. These zones help us to be aware and in control of our feelings and emotions.
The Red Zone is used to describe feeling angry, upset or out of control. I might want to hit or yell and I am not ready to learn.
The Yellow Zone is used to describe feeling frustrated, silly, a little out of control, worried or excited.
The Green Zone is used to describe a calm state. I feel happy, calm, focused and I am ready to learn.
The Blue Zone is used to describe feelings such as sad, tired, sick, or bored.
We have listened to stories and took part in activities to help us understand and identify different feelings and emotions. We know that we can use our toolkit to help us get back into the green zone.
We are really enjoying leading the learning and understanding our own emotions and feelings!
