Zones of Regulation: Ngā Takiwā kāre-ā-roto

Te Rehu, Westmere School, has been learning about emotional regulation. The Zones of Regulation is a book that can be used at school, kura, or at home, kainga. It can help us to talk about our feelings and manage our emotions so that we can get on better with others and get more out of our learning.

There is plenty of opportunity to link this to te reo Maori.

We have a PDF file of emotions for you that are bilingual so you can learn te reo Maori and te reo pakeha but they are not sorted into colours and the macrons are missing:

The first step of the Zones of Regulation is to learn about feelings and to group them in colours. If you want to find out more, there is a book available and some apps from Google Play or the Apple App store. You can find it all at this site:
