I use this for students who have trouble with outburst and anxiety. It seemed to really help focus the student and teach them ways to self regulate.

This is absolutely fantastic and my students really found it helpful. It is a lot of preparation but once it is done, it is set and forget! Very well aligned – but different enough to not be confusing – with zones of regulation.

This process honours kids so wonderfully! All feelings are valid and they have the power to regulate. Such a valuable process in an engaging, easy to follow process for kids to do independently. LOVE THIS!

This is stationed in Alaska (my cool down zone) and my students love it. It helps students who don’t know how to verbally express their feelings tell me how we can fix the problem together and also helps them learn how they can self-regulate.
