Zones of Regulation - Kindergarten to Grade 3

Zones of Regulation is a systematic, cognitive behavioural approach used to teach self-regulation by categorizing all the different ways we feel and states of alertness we experience into four concrete coloured zones. The Zones framework provides strategies to teach students to become more aware of and independent in controlling their emotions an impulses, manage their sensory needs and improve their ability to problem solve conflicts.
