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.
