Helping students to self regulate can be difficult, especially when they can go from 0 to 60 in seconds. This graphic organizer helps students break down their anger into different levels.
First, they recognize different triggers that can cause them to move out of the calm, level 1 zone. Students circle what angers them (and check/star anything that REALLY upsets them).
Next, following the arrow, students learn about the different stages and the level of control they have at each level. They will also recognize how they look, sound, and feel at each level.
Then they move up the the thinking bubble and can do a few different things. They can list the importance of why they need to get back to green, strategies they can use to get back to green, etc.
Last as students experience these stages and debrief about the situation, students can begin to add specific strategies they can use at each level to get them back to green.
Throughout the year, students are able to revise and edit this document, looking for what's working and helping to recognize what they need in order to self regulate.
I've included an example so you can see what it might look like after being filled out.
