Aww, Did Someone Say Exit Strategy Again? (Part III)

In previous posts, we discussed the importance of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) for children and strategies they can use to exit the red and blue quadrants.  In this post, we will discuss some strategies they can use to get themselves out of the yellow quadrant.  Again, this essentially means giving children the opportunity to recognize how they feel and then offering children strategies to exit any nonproductive mood they get in.  

Yellow Quadrant: 

What feelings are exhibited?   The yellow quadrant can essentially be split into two distinct categories.  On a good day, if children are in the yellow quadrant they could present feelings that are dynamic, sociable and persuasive.  On a bad day, if children are in the yellow quadrant they could present feelings that are frantic, ostentatious, or hasty.

In all emotions, children need to understand that it’s normal to feel the way they feel but if it hampers their productivity, then they need to learn strategies to exit themselves from those destructive emotions.  

Strategies they can use to feel less frantic, hasty, or ostentatious include: listening to music, taking deep breaths, talking with friends, exercising, yoga or reading.  Each child needs to find their niche to help them navigate through their emotions.
