I have now officially met with all 4th and 5th grade students. As part of my lesson, I asked them what they’d like me to focus on this year with the prompt, “Two things I would like the counselor to teach me about this year are…”. I have compiled the data, and here are the responses.
It is clear most 4th and 5th graders would like me to focus my time on friendships and careers. This is part of why I asked the question, because I likely wouldn’t have predicted these results. When planning upcoming classroom lessons, I will share this information with staff as well to help us guide our planning.
