Meet Echo the Elephant
We had a special guest join our Zones of Regulation lesson today, Echo the Elephant. He showed us how identifying facial expressions and body language can help us understand what zone someone might be in. We can't wait to see him again.
We also watched Charlie Brown and tried to identify the zones each of the characters were in. We noticed how the zone of one character could affect someone else's zone.
