Zones of Self-Regulation Emotions – Road Display

Zones of Self-Regulation Emotions – Road Display

A must have for any early years, key stage one or even key stage 2 classroom. This tool allows children to identify which ‘zone’ their current feelings and emotions fall into.
When pupils are able to self-regulate their emotions, they are in a better position to be able to direct their efforts towards a goal and can achieve this despite changing/challenging situations.

Emotional self-regulation helps pupils develop resilient attitudes and primes them for learning and success.

Our four zone self-regulation poster shows the four zones and the emotions in emoji format.

Teaching self-regulation comes in four easy zones:

Blue Zone – Sad, Sick, Tired or Bored

Green Zone – Happy, Calm, Relaxed or Proud

Yellow Zone – Frustrated, Worried, Silly or Excited

Red Zone – Out of control, Terrified, Mean or Angry

You can use our self-regulating resource pack to stick these around the classroom for your pupils to use.

We plan on expanding this range to give children further resources such as an emotions toolbox they can use to change zones.

    Could we have this as an editable version please? Would love to rework the colours to match with our school’s behaviour policy.

      Hi Laura

      The design of this resource doesn’t allow it to be turned into an editable version, but, as an Ultimate member, you can request any resource you would like to see so feel free to email us with the colours you would like to be used for each one to match your school’s behaviour policy and a member of the design team will create a bespoke resource just for you.

    I’d love to be able to download the image you have at the top. Where it shows the different colours and emotion faces on a road.

    Would it be possible to make a smaller version where children can have images on a fob like a self regulation fan and then they turn to the one they are feeling to check in.
