I really enjoyed coloring this sheet from my Affirmations for Grief Coloring Sheets 🌈🖍 #affirmationsforgrief
Looking for a way to spread a culture of kindness at your school? This is a great back to school craft. It uses only one sheet of paper per booklet. It’s editable to add your school logo or info.
Last lesson today using my Counselor’s Toolbox! I fit all props but the weird heart pillow with arms (😂) into my toolbox and pulled each item out to explain what a school counselor does. I heard about this activity years ago and love being able to use the props to share instead of just my words. The students love to see what item I’ll pull out next!
Each year I welcome the teachers back with a gift. This year it was a calm down kid for their classroom! Using tot documents and supplies I could get inexpensively, I made 25 kits. It was a great success! The day after handing them out I already saw some set up in classrooms! 👏🏻👏🏻 .
This would be a great thing to set up at home to practice self-regulation and emotion management! I think I’ll set up one for my daughter. .
My next task will be to make short videos on how to use each calming tool and hopefully teachers will play the videos to students after recess as a practice calm down tool!
I love to take printouts from a lesson and use it for a bulletin board! This is from my Fishing for Problem Solving 🐳🐠🐟 Lesson #aconfidentcounselor
A glimpse into my morning: core curriculum lessons!
Having so much fun working in an Elementary School. As many of you know I quit working as a full time counselor to do part time interims and full time TPT. We made this career board for the littles this week. Clickable link in profile.

Practiced some breathing techniques with some sweet 1st, 3rd, and 5th graders today.
Have patience and keep faith in your resilience. Stay mindful listening to the beats of your heart as your rhythm will help you find your way. ♥️👣👣👣♥️
For some it’s hard to release our grip on some things. Whether they have sentimental value or theres a slight chance it will come back in style! And what I’ve come to realize is when my space is a mess, my head is even worse. So let me ask you, if you had to get rid of 3 things today, what would they be?
Day 2 of my workshop week. Today we are doing a poverty simulation. I am playing the role of a 17 year old male who comes from Guatemala illegally with his 19 yr old brother. We are given a few bucks and a role to play. Our goal was to pay the coyote the money we owed him, get medication for my brother who has diabetes, in the simulation process we got robbed and our coyote made us sell drugs to pay for what we owed him. ALL SIMULATION, but an eye opener of what some of our students may go through. .
