We use the Zones of Regulation as a way for students to "check-in" and think about what they are feeling. This then opens up a conversation for why they are feeling this way and how we can help them develop strategies to get back into the "green"."
Example coping strategies:
-take a walk
-movement break (jumping jacks, squats, etc.)
-take a break and color a picture
-mountain or rollercoaster breathing
