Ms. Price from Rossville GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Frances' Cozy Counseling Corner!

My students need resources like books (Bully B.E.A.N.S.), kinetic sand, stress balls, and board games (My Feelings Game) to allow them the opportunity to open up about what they are facing at home and school.

My Students

The students I serve are loving, compassionate, and strong. Many move schools often as we have a transient population, so they are adept at meeting new people and making friends! They are often being raised by a relative or family friend, someone other than their parents. This creates a unique need for our students. I want them to feel safe, loved, and cared for while at school.

All students are special with gifts and talents that need to be fostered.

My goal is to meet each student where they are while encouraging and supporting them in any way that I can. I have a passion for helping students discover their own potential, and I strongly believe in the importance of educating the whole child. I see my role as the school counselor as vital to the overall health and well-being of our students.

My Project

I recently moved from being a high school Guidance Counselor for the past eleven years to an elementary school! I need help getting age-appropriate, hands-on activities such as Magnetic Building Blocks and Kinetic Sand. These items will allow students a fun distraction while talking about difficult subjects! I helped a counselor in our district who was ill and her office contained Liquid Motion Bubble Timers that the students loved. I am hoping to mirror that and have something similar for my students. The Cards of Calm Game, the My Feelings Game, and Choices in a Jar encourage students to properly identify and talk about their thoughts and feelings.

The Jenga classic game will be used so that I can tape questions on the bottom of each piece so that when students pull a piece they answer a question and I get to know them a little better!

I plan to distribute Big Mo's Toys 3" Emoji Balls-Stress to any student that is exhibiting signs of anxiousness and stress. I have found this year that the more activities I have to offer students while meeting with them the more they share.

I want the students to have a positive experience when they come to see me, even if we are talking about difficult and painful situations they are facing. I want to have a variety of things that they can play with as all students are different and have different interests. It can be comforting to the student to be able to play a fun game or even read a book, such as But It's Not My Fault and I'm Like You, You're Like Me that explains exactly what they are facing at home and/or school.
