Regulation station

Key points

This strategy is about creating and using a visual guide for the student to indicate their emotional state, and to guide you and them on how to increase or decrease their energy appropriately. We think it is useful for several modules in this toolkit. This strategy can be done with the whole class or the toolkit student individually



For example, after breaktime or when changing activity 

For example- if you’re at the orange station, shout out loud, if you at yellow, stand up and spin five times, if you are green, pat your head

“I really liked how you identified that you were feeling angry, and then you chose to throw pillows in the corner to get back to the calm station. You did a great job recognising your feelings”
