Wow! It’s already the end of August. Those three weeks went by quickly and yet so much was accomplished!
I met with each classroom to review who I am, what I do, and how to find me. We also spent time in kindergarten, first, and second grade distinguishing between big and small problems. We talked about how big problems usually needed an adult to help us, but we can solve small problems by ourselves. Third, fourth, and fifth grade took on the task of joining my 2019-2020 Counselor Classroom (a Google Classroom) so that in the future we can quickly get on the website and I can assess how much students learned during our lessons.
All grade levels also participated in a discussion of what rules are, why we have them, and examples of rules. This was the mini-lesson that is included with the district bullying curriculum. Starting next week, I will be going into classrooms to start these bullying lessons.
As a reminder, there is no school on Monday for Labor Day. Also, CLC clubs start on the 9th.
