Zones of Regulation
Spring Color By Code Zone
This activity is based off of the Zones of Regulation emotional regulation curriculum. This curriculum focuses on developing insight into emotional regulation and emotional control. This activity is a great stepping stone to practice what zone each emotion/behavior is in according to the curriculum. After the child/children are familiar with each of the four “zones,” future lessons focus on the identifying the tools that can be used to return to the “green zone.”
• 4 Spring color by code worksheets
• Answer guide
• Copies of color by code worksheets (included)
• Crayons/markers/colored pencils/etc.
1. Review the Zones of Regulation emotional regulation curriculum.
2. Ask the child/children to color each area the correct color that matches the zone in which that specific feeling/behavior belongs.
I.e. the area with the feeling “bored” would be colored blue. “Bored” is a feeling in the “blue zone” according to the Zones of Regulation curriculum.
When working in a classroom setting, it’s sometimes a good idea to pair students up and have them work together if they’re in the beginning stages of learning the Zones of Regulation curriculum. This promotes team building and problem solving.
