The Zones of Regulation 2-Storybook Set
Join Gabriel and his classmates as they learn about The Zones of Regulation through two storybooks. The first storybook, The Road to Regulation, helps students become more aware of their bodies and feelings and describes the four colored Zones of Regulation used to think and talk about these feelings. Through a colorful, imaginary adventure to “The Regulation Station,” the second storybook introduces the use of “tools” (or metacognitive strategies) to help students identify ways they can learn to manage their different feelings at school and home. Use this two-storybook set with relatable characters and situations to help children at developmental ages 5-11 learn the easy-to-use framework and the popular self-regulation curriculum. These storybooks are intended to be used in sequence, alongside related lessons within the Zones of Regulation curriculum. This is also available as a digital product.

Tools to Try Cards for Kids
Learning to regulate our Zones takes time and lots of practice. Tools to Try Cards for Kids is an easy-to-use, engaging way to introduce over 50 regulation strategies to kids ages 5-11 and empower them to make choices toward figuring out what works best for them. Every card portrays a relatable child performing a regulation tool on one side and a how-to-do-it description on the reverse. Each card includes a metacognitive self-reflection where kids consider how they feel after using the tool, how it can be used to help them regulate their Zones, and decide whether it’s the right tool for them. This hands-on, multisensory card deck supplements The Zones of Regulation curriculum and pairs well with the Navigating The Zones cooperative game and The Zones Storybook Set. This is also available as a digital product.

Do We Really Need to “Get Back to the Green Zone”? We Think Not. | Jun 2024

Author(s): Guest author: Emily LaShorne Walz, MS-Special Education LD/EBD/DCD, Implementation Specialist, The Zones of Regulation

Those of you who are seasoned users of The Zones of Regulation framework are very familiar with the core tenet and phrase “All the Zones are OK.” So, if we really mean that all the Zones are OK, why are we asking kids to “get back to Green”? When it comes to The Zones of Regulation, it is imperative to state, restate, and restate again that there is no “good Zone” or “bad Zone,” and that all Zones—the full rainbow spectrum of emotions—are expected in life.
