Zones of Regulation

WHAT ARE THE ZONES?

Students at GES are learning about the four zones to describe how their brain and body feel. Try asking your child what zone they are in!

BLUE Zone –Your body is running slow, such as when you are

tired, sick, sad or bored.

GREEN Zone –Like a green light, you are “good to go.” You body

may feel happy, calm and focused.

YELLOW Zone –This zone describes when you start to loose

control, such as when you are frustrated, anxious, worried, silly

or surprised. Use caution when you are in this zone.

RED Zone –This zone is for extreme emotions such as anger,

terror and aggression. When you are in this zone, you are out of

control, have trouble making good decisions and must STOP!
