My students need therapeutic books and games to help them understand sensitive topics as well as help them open up.
I am a guidance counselor at a title 1 school where 100% of our students receive free and reduced lunch. I work with all 650 of our students in grades 2nd-5th. I go into classrooms and teach a guidance curriculum as well as do individual and small group session
As with most title 1 schools, our students have not mastered many of their social skills.
We have many anger management issues as well as peer conflict issues. Many of my students have a hard time accepting let downs (not getting chosen, not getting a turn, not getting the answer correct) or have trouble working out their problems (friends not sharing, not letting them play, calling each other names, excluding others, and compromising). By doing classroom lessons or during groups, this gives me a chance to work with them to give them the tools they need to be successful in school as well as in life.
I need to come up with multiple creative ways to teach my lessons. This can be done by reading a book (such as the potato chip champ; which teaches children that everyone is different but we need to except that) to capture the students attention and then ask questions about that book and how it relates to the topic at hand. Most students when they come to my office do not open up. By playing games (such as trouble or imaginiff), it gets their minds off of the questions and makes them feel more at ease and allows them to be more open. I can also use the books about counseling (thinking and acting like a behavioral school counselor) to to give me more ideas on how to be a better counselor as well as the workbooks (how to get unstuck from negative muck) in my group sessions.
These materials will help my students learn social skills in a fun and creative way and help me to relax students so they can open up and tell me what is bothering them.
All of these materials will help me develop multiple strategies to be a more well rounded counselor to better help serve my students.Read More
