It's summertime - my time of the year where all else quiets down and I can really think about the things that are important to me. I've been so enjoying alone time with my dog, FUN time with my nieces and nephews, and time with my family and friends (many breakfasts and lunches to visit). Honestly, is it me, or does this summer seem to be flying by unusually quickly? It's been a rainy week here and I've been able to settle for a bit and do some reflecting. I have been thinking about this blog....and how I haven't posted in quite some time - but have a bunch of ideas, materials and tools I wan ..read more

As a part of our SWPBIS program in our school, weekly, students earn Fun Friday minutes and monthly, they earn the school-wide incentive. Students must earn a predetermined percentage of greens, blues and purples for that month. We have a different school-wide incentive each month and the students who do not earn the incentive earn a character lesson with me! Examples of our Monthly School-Wide Incentives September - Dance Party on Playground October - Fall Festival Outdoor Activities November - Minute-to-Win-It December - Movie and Popcorn January - School Snowstorm (arts/crafts snow relate ..read more

School Counseling Card Organization

This circled green container was my nemesis each and every school day morning for my 19 year career. It contained all of my "cards" I used for games, discussions, class lessons, group sessions, etc. Thrown in the box, the cards were either bundled up with rubber bands, separated in Ziploc baggies, or clipped together. Everyday, as I was gathering my materials for that days' activities or the next days' events, I had to practically empty out this container to FIND the cards I was looking for. Not only was it frustrating to search for what I needed, it was such a huge waste of my ..read more

Beginning School Counselor - What You Need to Know

Heading into my 19th year as an urban elementary school counselor, I was thinking the other day about what it would be like to be a novice school counselor again. Back then, when I began, I remember feeling on my own - we didn't have a written K-12 curriculum, we didn't have suicide or threat risk assessment documents and we didn't have many guidelines. I was forced to use what I learned in graduate school and from ASCA to do what I thought was best for the students and staff. I remember feeling overwhelmed because of the lack of direction. Yet, at the same time, I could create a program that ..read more

Kindergarten: Active Listening Skills Lesson

One of my favorite annual core-curriculum lessons for kindergartners is a listening skills lesson. It's not complicated, simple to implement, and the kids LOVE it!! I tend to do this lesson at the beginning of they year because it sets the tone for my listening expectations each time I come into the classroom over the course of the school year. First, gather students in front of you and teach them active listening skills. When they are being "active listeners" they are hearing what is being said, thinking about what is being said, and ready to answer questions and talk about what ..read more

While attending Rutgers University (many, many years ago) our Resident Adviser would disperse important university and dorm information by hanging a sign on the back of the bathroom stall door. The sign included important, fun and educational information. All these years, I thought this was a clever way of keeping folks informed. Where else do you have someone's undivided attention? Introducing my version of these collegiate signs which are hung in our staff bathrooms. Toilet Paper is the informational, educational and fun sheet. The fonts are from Kimberly Geswein ..read more
