The students at my school are bright, energetic, and curious. The school is diverse in culture, language, and student needs. My students love to read, learn, use technology, and socialize.
Our student population is becoming more diverse and some students require additional supports in and out of the classroom.
Some students benefit from small group counseling in the areas of social skills, making and keeping friends and regulating their emotions.
While school budgets are tight, student needs are on the rise. Creating projects on donorschoose.org helps us to meet our students needs.
These materials will make a difference in my students' learning by helping them be in the moment, be calm, regulate their emotions and be available for learning.
Many of these books concentrate on specific areas of concern for students including anxiety/worrying, friendships, mindfulness, having a growth mindset (knowing it will take time to master a skill) and making good behavioral choices at school.
These resources will be used in large classroom lessons, small formal groups, with individual students and for informal lunch bunches. Students will benefit greatly from learning these skills and being able to apply them to real life situations in and outside of school.
