Back a few years ago when I was a teacher in the preschool classroom, I introduced the Zones of Regulation. We had great success with it and it really helped the children recognize and identify their feelings, as well as others feelings.

Our makeshift tape parking lot and track is a big hit. The friends have loved driving their cars around it !

The Toddlers have been exploring boxes in the classroom. It has been a slide and a ramp. The toddlers have built a tent and tunnels to crawl under. It has been a dance floor and a car track. This has supported their interest in imaginary play.
The preschoolers have been making balancing courses to walk across. They collaborate and find the materials they will need. Today they used a ramp, blocks and an ottoman. They worked together to balance their way across and jumped over the ottoman.
