Social-Emotional Learning using magic videos and in-person help. The Ipad will be used to show videos to students for magic and will also be used to show videos of positive examples of good behavior. As the elementary school counselor, I use magic tricks to establish rapport with students and as a reward. Using magic also allows me to help the many students of our school, aligning with our restorative justice practices to illustrate better ways to solve student problems. Many students come to my office as a reward and learn how to perform magic tricks. It builds self-esteem and gives them another way to interact with their peers. It allows me as the school counselor to connect with them and problem solve the social-emotional difficulties they experience. When children learn a new skill such as magic and can perform it for others, they increase their confidence, which excites them about coming to school.
