SHAKE THAT FEELING! My son collects snow globes. He loves to shake the swirling snow. It got me to thinking about shaking those feelings and this lesson developed from there! I thought it would be fun to use a snow globe as a mental picture of shaking up those feelings. Recognizing feelings and communicating effectively are critical social skills.   The lesson begins with introducing feelings. “We all have lots of feelings! Sometimes we really like the feeling that we are having. We call those pleasant feelings….” Then we review and discuss each of the feelings by clicking on eac ..read more

When my children were small, they loved the Harry Potter series so much so that my oldest actually took a Harry Potter class in college! They loved the thought of making potions and having a magic wand. We have had wizarding birthday parties, made our own magical videos, and gone to the Wizarding World at Universal Studios. It has been a fun part of my children's childhood. So I got to thinking, don't School Counselors want their students to have a magical year? And thus, I created this Magical Meet the Counselor Escape Room. As students work together in small groups to figure out the ..read more

Looking for a fun activity to do during National Random Acts of Kindness Week in February? Or any time of the year for that matter! I was looking for a fun way to implement this and decided to make fortune tellers (or cootie catchers as we called them when I was young!)   I didn't want to call them Cootie Catchers, that certainly does not emphasize kindness and fortune tellers really didn't capture the thought that you can choose to do kind acts for others. So I named these Kindness Pinch~N~Pick.  I made 5 different versions with feelings clipart, animals clipart, and superher ..read more
