The Zones

What are the different Zones?

Blue Zone: low level of alertness; not ready to learn; feeling sad, sick, tired, bored or moving slowly.

Green Zone: calmly alert; optimal level to learn; feels happy, calm, feeling okay, focused.

Yellow Zone: heightened state of alertness; elevated emotions; has some control; feels frustrated, worried, silly/wiggly, excited, loss of some control.

Red Zone: heightened state of alertness and intense emotions; not an optimal level for learning; out of control; feels angry, terrified, yelling/hitting, elated, out of control.

 

We will teach the children that everyone experiences all of the Zones. The Red and Yellow zones are not ‘bad’ Zones. All of the Zones are expected at one time or another. We will show them that the Blue Zone, for example, is helpful when you are trying to fall asleep.
