Closing out 4th's responsibility unit with 'Using Self-Talk to Ignore Responsibility' - we watched the Sesame Street video clip on focus and then did some skits to demonstrate!
Our district has adopted 'I Can' statements for social emotional learning and I made quick visuals for the teachers to have as reminders for themselves. One of my 4th grade teachers hung hers in her reading noom!
Groupwork with third grade this week: Build a tree of cups without your hands! We reviewed our group guidelines (swipe over) and then got to work! Some groups were more successful than others, but they all had fun - and they all benefited from some direct social coaching in how to work well with others 😜
#teacherfeetupfriday (#counselorfeetupfriday) with my new favorite book find: 'The Bad Seed.' (P)review in my stories.
A #targetdollarspot bucket + some hot glue + a headband = the best way to engage my ELL class in a bucket filling lesson. Their teacher did an intro last week and I came in today to reinforce with 'How Full is Your Bucket?' and some applied practice. Students wrote kind actions and statements, read them aloud, and got to throw them into our buckets. I didn't get hit in the face a single time, the students got great practice with writing complete sentences, they were super engaged, and they identified more ways to be kind. 👍🏻
Sometimes you just need to shred those #PoopyPants thoughts. 💩💭With a cat figurine that represents your soul next to it. 😸🤣 Every day as a #schoolcounselor is different and I LOVE that part of it. . . . Mini hand shredder is on Amazon. Direct link on my blog under 'Other Must Haves.'
