Join Gabriel and his classmates as they learn about The Zones of Regulation through two storybooks. The first, The Road to Regulation, helps students become more aware of their bodies and feelings and describes the four colored Zones 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 regulation curriculum. These storybooks are intended to be used in sequence, alongside related lessons within the curriculum book, The Zones of Regulation.
