If you are in the Yellow Zone, you may be experiencing stress, frustration, anxiety, nervousness, or the sillies. Sometimes it is expected to be in the Yellow Zone (going to the doctor’s office or recess). Our lesson provided us with what others may be feeling, thinking, and saying about us when we are in the Yellow Zone and it is unexpected (at church, the library, and certain times in the classroom). www.zonesofregulation.com
