My students need stress-toys and games to help them calm down when they come to my office!
Our school is a low-income school in the Bronx, NY. The majority of my students are academically and emotionally challenged and suffer from trauma and poverty and as a result, exhibit depression, anxiety, and exhibit aggressive behaviors on a daily basis. Their parents and caregivers are also struggling and aren't always able to provide their children with the tools they need to even have a chance of success. A large number of our students are living in temporary housing and are traveling over an hour each way just to get to school.
As a school counselor, students come to my office when they are upset, agitated, angry, depressed and/or scared.
My office is also used as space where I meet with families, students and agency workers. I would love to create a space in the school where they know they are coming to a comfortable, inviting, clean atmosphere where they know when they leave, their child safe.
As a school counselor, students come to my office when they are upset, agitated, angry, depressed and/or scared. My office is also used as a space where I meet with families, students and agency workers. I would love new therapeutic games and toys such as "Aaron's Thinking putty" -- the kids love it! We are also requesting an activities book for special needs children, a notebook, stress balls, pens, and an UNO game. Even if we are in another area of the building, and I am called, because a student is upset, the students know that Ms. K has fun things in her room, and helps make the transition easier for both the upset student and the teacher. Creating an inviting environment is essential for me to do my job effectively. Thank you for your consideration!
