Behaviour

Lunchtime Behaviour

Students are expected to demonstrate respectful behaviour at all times. Student Expectations at Lunch posters are located in classrooms and in the main entrance hall as a reminder.

At lunchtime, students are asked to follow these rules.

Inside Rules

  • Bring healthy food & snacks (No candy, pop or junk food please!).
  • Use inside voices.
  • Wash your hands.
  • Remain seated while eating.
  • Clean-up their own area.
  • Recycle, Reuse and Compost.
  • Use the designated doors for entrance and exit.

Outside Rules

  • No sitting on top of monkey bars.
  • No climbing up on slide.
  • Use equipment respectfully everywhere especially in the sandpit.

The Zones of Regulation is a tool that supports student success by fostering positive self-regulation. This is the ability to identify and manage feelings. When a child is in a happy, calm, focused, and of an alert state-of-mind they will be more able to engage in and be a successful learner.

Chinook Park School uses the Zones of Regulation to build a common language for talking with students about how they are feeling and what strategies they may use to ensure they are ready to learn.

The Zones of Regulation includes four coloured zones that provide a visual reminder to think about feelings and state of mind. 

Green is the target zone for learning. It is in this zone that our feelings and degree of calmness allow for focused attention and thinking. 

Blue is the zone where we may not feel alert enough for learning – maybe we didn’t sleep well the night before. 

Yellow is the zone that means we are beginning to move out of the calm and focused zone – maybe we are beginning to feel silly, frustrated, worried, or taken by surprise. 

Red is the zone where our feelings are more extreme and they are making it very difficult to make thoughtful decisions. In the red zone, we may need some time away or help to calm down.

Each of these zones is appropriate at different times and in different contexts. Sometimes, being silly is appropriate – especially if we can be a bit silly and then bring ourselves back to the green zone. Once a student is able to identify their feelings and zone, strategies are taught to help them return to the green zone when necessary. The goal of using the Zones of Regulation is to support students to identify their feelings and state-of-mind and make choices that help them return to the green zone to be ready for learning. Research shows that students who are able to self-regulate experience more success overall.
